"You Could Be The One" - Mark 16
Are you the one?
Jesus said, "I give you all power and all authority over all the power that the enemy has." (Luke 10:9). You have both power and authority as believers. That's what we are supposed to walk in - His power and I thought, well, we're supposed to walk in His power but do we? We have the ability to walk in it if we would just step out in faith and do it. There's a sick and dying world out there and you can be the one who is the hands and the feet of Jesus.
You can be the one that lays hands on people and see them be healed. I love the end of Mark 16, verses 15-21. Jesus was talking to His disciples and right before He ascends, He was giving them the last instructions that he wanted them to have before He left them. And what does he tell them?
"These signs will accompany those who believe: in my name, they will cast out demons; they will speak with new languages; ...they will lay hands on the sick, and they will recover." Mark 17-18 WEB
All believers, signs, and wonders will follow all those who believe, they will speak with new tongues, they will cast out devils. They will lay hands on the sick and they will recover. That's our legacy! It's our job description! It is our mandate! Go Preach the Gospel, heal the sick, cast out demons, deliver the captives, set the captives free, heal the brokenhearted. So, in doing that, when you first step out into obedience, you start trying to do those things and the Lord will work with you just like He did His disciples.
I had an evangelistic spirit that come upon me when I was young. Through the power of the Gospel, I shared the Gospel: Christ, born of a virgin, died on a cross, lived a holy life. The son of God. He was crucified and resurrected with everyone I could. By His stripes, we are healed. The stripes that He bore upon His back were for our healing. And I love the fact that by His blood, the blood of Jesus, we can be set free and healed from everything. He's not just a Healer, He is healing.
