Romans 8:11 NLT

The Spirit of God, who raised Jesus from the dead, lives in you. And just as God raised Christ Jesus from the dead, he will give life to your mortal bodies by this same Spirit living within you.”

Matthew 28:18 akjb

“And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth.”                                         

Proverbs 13:3 NIV

“Those who guard their lips preserve their lives,but those who speak rashly will come to ruin.”

Matthew 12:36-37 KJV

 “I say to you that every idle word men may speak, they will give account for it on the day of judgment. For by your words you will be justified and by your words you will be condemned.”

Luke 10:19 KJV

“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.”         

Luke 10:19 can also read like this:

“Behold, I give unto you authority to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the ability of the enemy: and nothing shall by any means hurt you.”

Matthew 10:11 KJV

“And when he had called unto him his twelve disciples, he gave them power against unclean spirits, to cast them out, and to heal all manner of sickness and all manner of disease.”                                                              

Matthew 9:8 KJV

“But when the multitudes saw it, they marvelled, and glorified God, which had given such power unto man.”                         

Philippians 3:10 KJV

“I want to know Christ and the power of His resurrection.”

Ephesians 3:19-20 AMPC

“[That you may really come] to know [practically, [a]through experience for yourselves] the love of Christ, which far surpasses [b]mere knowledge [without experience]; that you may be filled [through all your being] [c]unto all the fullness of God [may have the richest measure of the divine Presence, and [d]become a body wholly filled and flooded with God Himself]!

20 Now to Him Who, by (in consequence of) the [action of His] power that is at work within us, is able to [carry out His purpose and] do superabundantly, far over and above all that we [dare] ask or think [infinitely beyond our highest prayers, desires, thoughts, hopes, or dreams]”

John 15:16 KJV

“Ye have not chosen me, but I have chosen you, and ordained you, that ye should go and bring forth fruit, and that your fruit should remain: that whatsoever ye shall ask of the Father in my name, he may give it you.”

First, God chose you.

Ephesians 2:8 AMPC

For it is by free grace (God’s unmerited favor) that you are saved (delivered from judgment and made partakers of Christ’s salvation) through [your] faith. And this [salvation] is not of yourselves [of your own doing, it came not through your own striving], but it is the gift of God;

Not because of works [not the fulfillment of the Law’s demands], lest any man should boast. [It is not the result of what anyone can possibly do, so no one can pride himself in it or take glory to himself.]”

1 Peter 2:9 TLB

“But you are not like that, for you have been chosen by God himself—you are priests of the King, you are holy and pure, you are God’s very own—all this so that you may show to others how God called you out of the darkness into his wonderful light.”

Second, God ordained you.

2 Corinthians 5:20 ESV

Therefore, we are ambassadors for Christ, God making his appeal through us….”

Acts 13:47 AMPC

“For so the Lord has charged us, saying, I have set you to be a light for the Gentiles (the heathen), that you may bring [eternal] salvation to the uttermost parts of the earth.”

Mark 10:16 AMPC

“And He took them [the children up one by one] in His arms and [fervently invoked a] blessing, placing His hands upon them.”

Third, that we should go and bring forth fruit.

Colossians 1:10 AMPC

“That you may walk (live and conduct yourselves) in a manner worthy of the Lord, fully pleasing to Him and desiring to please Him in all things, bearing fruit in every good work and steadily growing and increasing in and by the knowledge of God [with fuller, deeper, and clearer insight, [b]acquaintance, and recognition].”

John 15:1-8 AMPC

“I am the True Vine, and My Father is the Vinedresser.

Any branch in Me that does not bear fruit [that stops bearing] He cuts away (trims off, takes away); and He cleanses and repeatedly prunes every branch that continues to bear fruit, to make it bear more and richer and more excellent fruit.

You are cleansed and pruned already, because of the word which I have given you [the teachings I have discussed with you].

Dwell in Me, and I will dwell in you. [Live in Me, and I will live in you.] Just as no branch can bear fruit of itself without abiding in (being vitally united to) the vine, neither can you bear fruit unless you abide in Me.

I am the Vine; you are the branches. Whoever lives in Me and I in him bears much (abundant) fruit. However, apart from Me [cut off from vital union with Me] you can do nothing.

If a person does not dwell in Me, he is thrown out like a [broken-off] branch, and withers; such branches are gathered up and thrown into the fire, and they are burned.

If you live in Me [abide vitally united to Me] and My words remain in you and continue to live in your hearts, ask whatever you will, and it shall be done for you.

Fourth, that our fruit should remain.

John 15:8 AMPC

When you bear (produce) much fruit, My Father is honored and glorified, and you show and prove yourselves to be true followers of Mine.”

Matthew 7:16 KJV

“You will fully recognize them by their fruits. Do people pick grapes from thorns, or figs from thistles?”

Fifth, whatever we ask

John 15:16 KJV

“. . . that whatsoever ye shall ask of the Father in my name, he may give it you.”

Leviticus 20:22-24 CEV

“Obey my laws and teachings. Or else the land I am giving you will become sick of you and throw you out. The nations I am chasing out did these disgusting things, and I hated them for it, so don't follow their example. I am the LORD your God, and I have promised you their land that is rich with milk and honey. I have chosen you to be different from other people.”

Sixth, in our Father’s name. . .

Deuteronomy 30:9 KJV

“And the Lord your God will make you abundantly prosperous in every work of your hand, in the fruit of your body, of your cattle, of your land, for good; for the Lord will again delight in prospering you, as He took delight in your fathers.”

John 15:16 KJV

“Ye have not chosen me, but I have chosen you, and ordained you, that ye should go and bring forth fruit, and that your fruit should remain: that whatsoever ye shall ask of the Father in my name, he may give it you.”

Seventh, He shall give it to us.

Psalm 37:4 AMPC

“Delight yourself also in the Lord, and He will give you the desires and secret petitions of your heart.”

Psalm 37:4 TLB
