“How God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Ghost and with power: who went about doing good, and healing all that were oppressed of the devil; for God was with him.”  Acts 10:38

Not only did Jesus demonstrate great authority over unclean spirits in his earthly ministry, he proved that that authority could be delegated. He gave his disciples power over unclean spirits, and sure enough, they came back rejoicing. The Bible says: “And the seventy returned again with joy, saying, Lord, even the devils are subject unto us through thy name” Luke 10:17.
Isn’t that remarkable? Such authority had never, before that time, been given to men. But Jesus did it, and got his disciples doing it. This is the beauty of the ministry of Christ. His aim wasn’t merely to show off the power of God, but to hand us the keys to same.
Peter felt it was cool that Jesus walked on water and was invited to do same. That’s Jesus for you. Whatever we saw in His life, we will do and greater to the glory of the Father. He says: “Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father.”  John 14:12. The works he did are not merely for you to marvel at but for you to do. Go into your world today and do! Go about doing good because God is with you!
