Like Jesus

John 14:12
Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father.

Jesus said, \”He that believeth on me, the works that i do shall he do also.\” Pause! How on earth are we going to do His mighty works, if we do not have the same resources He had?

Actually we do. Jesus made the final provision or resource available to all of us on the day of Pentecost. On that day, He sent the Holy Ghost.

But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth. (Acts 1:8)

We have all been given a ministry of reconciliation. A ministry that is birthed after the born again experience. This is confirmed in 2 Corinthians 5:17-20, \”Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new. 18 And all things are of God, who hath reconciled us to himself by Jesus Christ, and hath given to us the ministry of reconciliation; 19 To wit, that God was in Christ, reconciling the world unto himself, not imputing their trespasses unto them; and hath committed unto us the word of reconciliation.20 Now then we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God did beseech you by us: we pray you in Christ\’s stead, be ye reconciled to God.\”

We are new creatures in Christ: we have the Spirit of God. We are crucified with Christ: nevertheless we live; yet not us, but Christ liveth in us, and He will work through us, using the same resources and more.

As we humbly allow Him to work through us, we will do His works and even greater works than He did.
