John 14:12 Scripture Meditation by Stephen Taylor

John 14:12

“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.” 


This isn’t an option but a responsibility of all believers!! I read this last night and was like, “What a great promise but also what a big responsibility!!” Jesus says “they WILL do.” To me, that means It’s not an option, and He expects it from His people.


This verse is talking about quantity not quality, like no one could ever match Jesus. We all know that! But our reach in the world has grown dramatically since He walked this earth 2000 years ago! We are able to reach more people in farther ends of the world, and we’re expected to! I believe the works Jesus is talking about here are not just miraculous healings and miracles but also accurate, sound teaching of Scripture, helping people who stray off the path, rebuking people who try to pervert the Gospel, intercessory prayer, and loving the unlovable!! 


When He went to the Father, we got yet another great gift from Him, and that is the Holy Spirit, who will guide us and help us accomplish this!!! We could never surpass Jesus or what he did, but we can sure show Him and His power to the world! The world is going to judge us by what we do and say, so let’s give them something to talk about!!!  


I love you all, God bless, and Glory to God!!!!!
