And then he told them, “Go into all the world and preach the Good News to everyone. Anyone who believes and is baptized will be saved. But anyone who refuses to believe will be condemned. These miraculous signs will accompany those who believe: They will cast out demons in my name, and they will speak in new languages. They will be able to handle snakes with safety, and if they drink anything poisonous, it won’t hurt them. They will be able to place their hands on the sick, and they will be healed” (Mark 16:15-18 NLT).
Jesus’s last words (see also Matthew 28:16-20; Luke 24:36, 50-51; and John 20:26) are just as clear, and as revolutionary–as the words that began his ministry (see Luke 4:16-30).
God, confirm Jesus’s words in my life. Let your miraculous signs accompany me–to heal and set people free, to glorify you, to bring your kingdom here.
