Daily Word Of God

Mark 16:15-20

Jesus showed himself to the Eleven, and he said to them, ‘Go out to the whole world; proclaim the gospel to all creation. Whoever believes and is baptised will be saved; whoever does not believe will be condemned. These are the signs that will be associated with believers: in my name they will cast out devils; they will have the gift of tongues; they will pick up snakes in their hands and be unharmed should they drink deadly poison; they will lay their hands on the sick, who will recover.’

And so the Lord Jesus, after he had spoken to them, was taken up into heaven; there at the right hand of God he took his place, while they, going out, preached everywhere, the Lord working with them and confirming the word by the signs that accompanied it.

  • Jesus wants His disciples and all of us today, to proclaim the Good News of Salvation to all peoples.


  • There are billions of people in the world who do not yet know and love Jesus enough to accept His gift of eternal salvation. There are also those who have heard, but are not yet inspired and encouraged to accept Jesus.
