Today's reading: John 14
Very truly, I tell you, the one who believes in me will also do the works that I do and, in fact, will do greater works than these because I am going to the Father. John 14: 12 NRSV
Think of all the works that Jesus did. He healed the sick, raised the dead, inspired the living, reached out to the marginalized, converted sinners, called people to repent, taught and trained the disciples, called people to ministry, calmed the storm, walked on water, challenged the righteous, and lived the truth.
And he said if we believe in him, have faith in him, we would do greater works than these.
Do you really believe that?
Does your faith in Jesus strengthen you to do greater works that what Jesus did?
Jesus said this would happen because he would be with the Father. If we asked in Jesus' name, he would make it so.
Do you truly believe that?
God, help our unbelief! In Jesus' name we pray. Amen.
