But I have raised you up for this very purpose, that I might show you my power and that my name might be proclaimed in all the earth.
Do you know that God has raised you up for a purpose? From the beginning He intended to use you to help build and advance the kingdom of God.
Jesus told the disciples God’s plan to save the world through His death and resurrection… and He let them know that they were included in the plan. He promised that whoever acknowledges Him publically on earth, He will acknowledge them openly in heaven (Matthew 10:32).
Paul tells us in Romans 10:9 that if we confess with our mouths that Jesus is Lord and believe in our hearts that God raised Him from the dead, we will be saved. If you have made your confession… if you have believed with your heart… then you are saved!
