Nothing catches your eye more than Scripture declaring for us to do more than Jesus…
Let that sink in…
“I tell you the truth, anyone who believes in me will do the same works I have done, and even greater works because I am going to be with the Father.” John? ?14:12? (bold italic added)
Jesus had only three years in His ministry, but in that time, He performed so many miracles, that they couldn’t all be written about – the ones we read, are what the Disciples deemed would help us to pursue Christ, encourage us, and build our faith, to do even greater things (John 20:30-31)
We have the same Spirit that Jesus did. I desire to be known as a person that God used mightily for His Kingdom. Where people are healed, miracles are seen, souls are saved, the dead rise, and much MORE…why?
For me, it’s because of John 14:12. I want to do even greater works than Jesus because Scripture tells us too. Imagine if there were people bold enough to go after everything that God gave to Jesus?
We speak of God’s Generals (there are even books we can read) These are the individuals that have chased after God with everything in them, and God used them powerfully
Yet, there are 2.3 billion Christians currently on this earth, and every single one of us has the ability to do better than Jesus. Even greater signs and wonders…imagine it…no sickness, no death, no pain, no fear…we shouldn’t be waiting to go to Heaven. Heaven needs to come to Earth (read the Lords Prayer!)
I laugh out loud at the thought of Heaven coming to earth. Can you imagine Satan? That would be a bad day for him, but I also imagine that this would have God on the edge of His seat, watching, waiting, for each and every one of us, to be bold, fearless, and to step out each and every day.
This is my life’s goal. To encourage and equip others to feel worthy of this. To lift each of us up, and all of us to go after God, for more.
