Accompanying Signs Following You

Mark 16:15-20 (ESV) And he said to them, “Go into all the world and proclaim the gospel to the whole creation. 16 Whoever believes and is baptized will be saved, but whoever does not believe will be condemned. 17 And these signs will accompany those who believe: in my name they will cast out demons; they will speak in new tongues; 18 they will pick up serpents with their hands; and if they drink any deadly poison, it will not hurt them; they will lay their hands on the sick, and they will recover.” 19 So then the Lord Jesus, after he had spoken to them, was taken up into heaven and sat down at the right hand of God. 20 And they went out and preached everywhere, while the Lord worked with them and confirmed the message by accompanying signs.

v17 says, “These signs will accompany those who believe”. If you’re a believer – meaning you’ve given your life to Jesus Christ to be your Lord and Saviour, then the signs spoken of here in these verses will accompany you. How cool is that! Unleashed upon a world that has lost their way with some pretty heavy-duty signs tracking with us. Here’s the thing about being Unleashed, we’re not alone. V20 says, “while the Lord worked with them”. As you and I GO, Jesus goes with us “confirming the message (we bring) by accompanying signs”. Makes you want to GO doesn’t it? Makes you want to GO expecting for these signs to follow and manifest themselves. And it makes you want to GO so that you can finally begin to see these signs activated in your life and in lives of those around you. You and I as born-again believers in Jesus Christ have these promises written in non-erasable ink, let’s then do something with it in ways we’ve never tried before. (You may want to reread what those signs are and then begin to see yourself in the picture.)
