John 14:12 (NIV) Very truly I tell you, whoever believes in me will do the works I have been doing, and they will do even greater things than these, because I am going to the Father.
“Faith in Christ is not merely a passive act, it is also active; it is to become a participant in the power and mission of God and in some way to share in the ministry of God through Christ.” [E. Klink III, John (Zondervan Exegetical Commentary on the New Testament)]
Following in the way-truth-life of Jesus is an adventure. It will lead us into a life that participates in the spectacular works of Jesus. In a sense, his amazing life becomes the starting template for all who follow him. How incredible is that! The miracles of Jesus continue through us as we follow him as the way, the truth, and the life.
Let’s pray: Father, we thank you for calling us into a life unlike any other. Give us the faith to step into the works of Jesus. Continue them through us in our day. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
Let’s worship to “In Over My Head” by Bethel Music.
