But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you, and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth.”
I can do all things through him who strengthens me.
Behold, I have given you authority to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy, and nothing shall hurt you.
Finally, be strong in the Lord and in the strength of his might.
For the kingdom of God does not consist in talk but in power.
And God raised the Lord and will also raise us up by his power.
