Always blown away by the assurance of Jesus… “Greater things will you do!”

Greater thingsI’m always blown away by the “truly, truly” promise and challenge of Jesus recorded in John 14:12-14…

“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!'”

Sometimes in sports there is talk of those who “move the goal.” The saying is always expressed in a context of “fudging” a little or cheating to make scoring easier. I never want to be guilty of that in Spiritual matters! If Jesus said it, I believe it – I want to embrace and internalize the factors that make it possible – and I want His expression “in my name” to signify that His goals and purposes are my goals and purposes!

In fact, I jotted these words in the margin of my Bible beside this passage this morning… “This is a very high standard of involvement and participation in His mission and ministry! I want it to be and become a reality in my life as part of “the body of Christ!”
