Dr. David Jeremiah: The Man of Nain

In Luke 7, Jesus entered the town of Nain as a funeral procession was exiting the city. A young man had died, and his widowed mother was grief stricken. A crowd came together to wail with her and comfort her. Jesus approached the bier, gazed at the corpse, and said, “?Young man, I say to you, get up!’ The dead man sat up and began to talk, and Jesus gave him back to his mother” (verses 14-15, NIV).

I wonder what he said? Perhaps it was “Where am I?” or “What happened?” Or maybe he said, “I felt I was in heaven! What am I doing back here?” Or perhaps he looked up at Jesus and said, “Thank You!”

The point is, whenever Jesus gives us a new beginning, we start to talk. We can’t keep our fresh start to ourselves. When the Lord helps us make a turnaround in life, we want to praise Him. When He brings us through a difficult season, we want to testify of His faithfulness. When we come to a place of fresh commitment to Him, we should tell others all He has done.

Let the redeemed of the Lord say so!
