When Jesus walked the earth He developed quite a reputation! His teaching was profound and life transforming! His power to heal and deliver was incredible and brought hope and help to needy people! Ponder these words I read this morning in the Bible during my time of “coffee with the Lord”…
“And He came down and stood on a level place, with a great crowd of his disciples and a great multitude of people from all over Judea and Jerusalem and the seacoast of Tyre and Sidon. They came to hear him and to be healed of their diseases. And those who were troubled with unclean spirits were cured. And all the crowd sought to touch him, for power came out from him and healed them all.” (From Luke 6:17–19)
I am one who believes that nothing has changed! Jesus is still alive and active! He died, but rose again from the dead! “He is the same, yesterday, today and forever!” (Hebrews 13:8) We can still expect Him to work miracles today through the power of the Holy Spirit!
He told His followers, “Truly, truly, I say to you, whoever believes in me will also do the works that I do; and greater works than these will he do, because I am going to the Father. Whatever you ask in my name, this I will do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son. If you ask me anything in my name, I will do it.” (From John 14:12–14)
Wow! That blows me away!! I don’t know about you, but I’m going to claim that promise and believe He will fulfill it!
