When the Lord saves you, do you think all there is to do is sit around and shout Glory!?  Or is there a purpose for your life hereafter?  Let’s have a look at Mark 1:9-27,

9  And it came to pass in those days, that Jesus came from Nazareth of Galilee, and was baptized of John in Jordan.
10  And straightway coming up out of the water, he saw the heavens opened, and the Spirit like a dove descending upon him:
11  And there came a voice from heaven, saying, Thou art my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased.
12  And immediately the Spirit driveth him into the wilderness.
13  And he was there in the wilderness forty days, tempted of Satan; and was with the wild beasts; and the angels ministered unto him.
14  Now after that John was put in prison, Jesus came into Galilee, preaching the gospel of the kingdom of God,
15  And saying, The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand: repent ye, and believe the gospel.
16  Now as he walked by the sea of Galilee, he saw Simon and Andrew his brother casting a net into the sea: for they were fishers.
17  And Jesus said unto them, Come ye after me, and I will make you to become fishers of men.
18  And straightway they forsook their nets, and followed him.
19  And when he had gone a little further thence, he saw James the son of Zebedee, and John his brother, who also were in the ship mending their nets.
20  And straightway he called them: and they left their father Zebedee in the ship with the hired servants, and went after him.
21  And they went into Capernaum; and straightway on the sabbath day he entered into the synagogue, and taught.
22  And they were astonished at his doctrine: for he taught them as one that had authority, and not as the scribes.
23  And there was in their synagogue a man with an unclean spirit; and he cried out,
24  Saying, Let us alone; what have we to do with thee, thou Jesus of Nazareth? art thou come to destroy us? I know thee who thou art, the Holy One of God.
25  And Jesus rebuked him, saying, Hold thy peace, and come out of him.
26  And when the unclean spirit had torn him, and cried with a loud voice, he came out of him.
27  And they were all amazed, insomuch that they questioned among themselves, saying, What thing is this? what new doctrine is this? for with authority commandeth he even the unclean spirits, and they do obey him.
You see, after Christ Jesus was baptized of John the Baptist, when He returned from forty days in the wilderness, He came out in POWER!  He immediately not only demonstrated the Kingdom of God, He called followers to do what HE was doing, and empowered them to do the things He himself did.  What’s that?  Well, believe it or not, He gave them power to cast out devils, to heal the sick, to raise the dead (don’t say THAT too loud, someone might think you’re nuts), and to preach repentance from sin.

I don’t see anywhere in the Gospels of Matthew, Mark, Luke and John where Jesus left any of His followers unchanged.  He turned their lives upside down.  Or rather, He turned their lives right-side UP!  Notice that wherever Jesus and the disciples went, multitudes followed them.  After a period of time, Jesus sent His disciples forth to preach the Gospel. Let’s read it in Luke 9:

Then he called his twelve disciples together, and gave them power and authority over all devils, and to cure diseases.
2  And he sent them to preach the kingdom of God, and to heal the sick.
3  And he said unto them,
Take nothing for your journey, neither staves, nor scrip, neither bread, neither money; neither have two coats apiece.
4  And whatsoever house ye enter into, there abide, and thence depart.
5  And whosoever will not receive you, when ye go out of that city, shake off the very dust from your feet for a testimony against them.
6  And they departed, and went through the towns, preaching the gospel, and healing every where.
7  Now Herod the tetrarch heard of all that was done by him: and he was perplexed, because that it was said of some, that John was risen from the dead;
8  And of some, that Elias had appeared; and of others, that one of the old prophets was risen again.
9  And Herod said, John have I beheaded: but who is this, of whom I hear such things? And he desired to see him.
10  And the apostles, when they were returned, told him all that they had done. And he took them, and went aside privately into a desert place belonging to the city called Bethsaida.

Afterwards He sent another seventy out, in Luke 10,
1  After these things the Lord appointed other seventy also, and sent them two and two before his face into every city and place, whither he himself would come.
2  Therefore said he unto them, The harvest truly is great, but the labourers are few: pray ye therefore the Lord of the harvest, that he would send forth labourers into his harvest.
3  Go your ways: behold, I send you forth as lambs among wolves.
4  Carry neither purse, nor scrip, nor shoes: and salute no man by the way.
5  And into whatsoever house ye enter, first say, Peace be to this house.
6  And if the son of peace be there, your peace shall rest upon it: if not, it shall turn to you again.
7  And in the same house remain, eating and drinking such things as they give: for the labourer is worthy of his hire. Go not from house to house.
8  And into whatsoever city ye enter, and they receive you, eat such things as are set before you:
9  And heal the sick that are therein, and say unto them, The kingdom of God is come nigh unto you.
10  But into whatsoever city ye enter, and they receive you not, go your ways out into the streets of the same, and say,
11  Even the very dust of your city, which cleaveth on us, we do wipe off against you: notwithstanding be ye sure of this, that the kingdom of God is come nigh unto you.
12  But I say unto you, that it shall be more tolerable in that day for Sodom, than for that city.
13  Woe unto thee, Chorazin! woe unto thee, Bethsaida! for if the mighty works had been done in Tyre and Sidon, which have been done in you, they had a great while ago repented, sitting in sackcloth and ashes.
14  But it shall be more tolerable for Tyre and Sidon at the judgment, than for you.
15  And thou, Capernaum, which art exalted to heaven, shalt be thrust down to hell.
16  He that heareth you heareth me; and he that despiseth you despiseth me; and he that despiseth me despiseth him that sent me.
17  And the seventy returned again with joy, saying, Lord, even the devils are subject unto us through thy name.
18  And he said unto them, I beheld Satan as lightning fall from heaven.
19  Behold, I give unto you power to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy: and nothing shall by any means hurt you.
20  Notwithstanding in this rejoice not, that the spirits are subject unto you; but rather rejoice, because your names are written in heaven.

Now, can you see where I’m going with this?  As a result of the work of past disciples of Christ Jesus preaching the Gospel of the Kingdom of God, YOU have heard the Gospel, and HOPEFULLY have believed unto salvation.  Does it end here?  NO!!  NOW IT’S  YOUR TURN TO GO PREACH THE GOSPEL IN POWER AND DEMONSTRATION OF THE SPIRIT!
God has empowered YOU as a disciple of Christ Jesus, to do the very things THEY did, in order to make new disciples and enlarge the Kingdom of God.  So what are you waiting for?  Get busy doing the work of the Kingdom of God!
