Word of Life Assembly of God


Called and Commissioned

Read Mark 6:1 through 7:37

Crowds flocked to Jesus’ ministry as He healed the sick, raised the dead, and even calmed a raging storm. The Lord spent time preparing His special group of twelve apostles for the mission to which He called them. Then He gave them authority over evil spirits and sent them out in groups of two to proclaim His message. Their ministry brought miraculous results.

They drove out many demons and anointed many sick people with oil and healed them (Mark 6:13).

The miracles performed through their ministry pointed to the Messiah who came to proclaim the kingdom of God. This was not an isolated experience. Throughout the Book of Acts these miracles continued through the ministry of Jesus’ followers—and they continue today.

God still calls people to spread the gospel message and still accompanies that message with miracles. Miracles verify the truth of the gospel and point people to God. That calling to go and tell others applies to all who respond obediently to God’s plan and purpose for their lives.

Prayer Suggestion: God, please help me to fulfill the mission You have for me.
