Look Who Had Miraculous Power

To read the Bible in a year, read Matthew 10.1-23.
Matthew wrote, “And when [Jesus] had called His twelve disciples to Him, He gave them power over unclean spirits, to cast them out, and to heal all kinds of sickness and all kinds of disease” (Matthew 10.1). Jesus chose twelve men and to them He gave power over the world of the spirit and the world of the flesh, so that they could cast out demons and heal any kind of bodily ailment. Jesus chose twelve men to have these powers. Did you get that? Matthew named those men for us (v. 2-4), adding at the end, “…and Judas Iscariot, who also betrayed Him” (Matthew 10.4).
Judas, you had unparalleled privilege! What happened, man? He wanted the power of money, even just a little bit of money, and wanted it enough that he would give up everything and anything for it.
Friends, you have unparalleled privilege! You are going to heaven, if you follow the Lord Jesus Christ wherever He goes! Is there a sin, even a “little” one, that you are willing to have even if it means missing heaven? Kill that desire right now!
