Jesus called his followers to do what he did - greater things.
“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
Do we really believe that? What are exactly are those greater things?
I believe that God has greater things in store for us. Things he longs for us to do and things we need to get doing. There are two things that can get us off track with greater things. One is lesser things. The church is people who choose to follow Jesus, but its so easy to get sidetracked by things that really don’t matter much. So many want only to be more for their lives but settle for less. They compromise the greatness that God has called people to be. The other is “better things”. These are things that we think are more worthwhile than what Jesus calls us to do. So many are discontent, they do want greatness but on their own terms. In our pursuit of the things we desire we actually prevent God’s greater things for us and through us. What is more important than what he calls us to? Here is the thing, we are called to image God. You show God’s greatness through your life.
What is they key to greater things? Read John 14 and you will discover one thing Jesus calls his followers to do that distinguishes how great things work themselves out in our lives.
