“Most assuredly, I say to you, he who believes in Me, the works that I do he will do also; and greater works than these he will do, because I go to My Father.” (John 14:12, NKJV).
Anytime I think of these words that Jesus said, I see a leader who is secure in Himself. He was never afraid of His protégé doing greater things than He did. He didn’t care if they made more fame, or become more successful in their achievements than He did. He knew that no leader is successful until his followers do greater things than he did. Some of our mentors need to know this.
This saying, that we will do greater things than Jesus did, is no joke. It is true. If you’ve read the bible from the book of Matthew to John to study the miracles of Jesus, you would see that at every moment He taught His disciples the principles of replicating what He did.
The question is can we do greater works than Jesus? Emphatically yes! How is that possible? The secret is the presence of the Holy Spirit in your life. The Holy Spirit was the power of Jesus on earth. He was the secret behind His works. And you know what, He left His secret with us. He didn’t go with it. That’s a great leader who wants to see others prospers more than He did.
Jesus had some habits in Him that made the power in Him active. He charged the anointing in him daily through: 1. Daily prayers 2. Study of God’s word 3. Meditation 4. Confession 5. Preaching and teaching God’s word 6. Doing good where ever He went. You too can make this a lifestyle. You can do greater works than Jesus did. Great week ahead my friend. #BeInspired.
