Words from the Heart for Monday October 5th, 2020
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 (NLT)
Even Greater Works
If you’ve ever had to a paint a large wall, you will be grateful for a fellow Canadian by the name of Norman Breakey. He is the inventor of the paint roller. Unfortunately, he died before he could patent his helpful invention, so the first patent for a paint roller went to American Richard Croxton Adams. And, speaking of painting, in 1930 the first in the world were painted on a stretch of highway between Ontario and Quebec in 1930, having been invented by Ontario department of transport engineer John D. Millar. road lines in the world were painted on a stretch of highway between Ontario and Quebec, having been invented by the Ontario Department of Transport engineer John D. Millar.
Jesus spent three and a half years living, eating, breathing with His disciples, training them to faithfully teach what He had taught them, ministering as He did. He was preparing them for the ministry of the Gospel. Filled with the Holy Spirit on Pentecost, they would travel to the ends of the known world and through them the world would be transformed. Jesus would make an astonishing prophecy in John 14:12: “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.” While Jesus was on earth, He was limited by time and space. He was only one person. But when God the Holy Spirit came in power, the Church, the Body of Christ, was birthed. Jesus was unleashed in the world through His people. Over the next 2000 years, in every corner of the globe, the work of Jesus would explode. His prophecy has come true and will continue to come true until He returns. You are the body of Christ. Keep on trusting in Him and watch what He does.
These have been words from the heart.
