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 you know people that have done some great things? I’m sure names like Nelson Mandela, Mother Teresa, Jesus and others come to mind. Do you ever think about your name being known for doing great things? We all have been told that we are great at something. However not all of us hone in on that thing and become even greater.
In John 14:12 Jesus spoke these words of encouragement and empowerment to prepare his disciples for the time when He would no longer be physically on earth with them. He informed them that if they believed in him they would do greater things. Believing in Jesus for some is difficult so let me help you strengthen your belief by advising you to start here. Ask God to help your unbelief. The great thing about God that a lot of Christians don’t know is He will work with what you have. With belief in Jesus He ensures us that we will do greater things.
As Christians we sometimes think that we cannot compare to what Jesus did but that is not at all true. With Him in us we can do great things too. Great means being able to reach many people for Him.
