Jesus promised that every person who believes in Him has the ability to do works that are greater than His. How can this be? Through the power of the indwelling Holy Spirit, we are empowered to seek and save the lost, as far as the ends of the Earth. The norm for every believing person can be to live a life before God that is not a wasted life, a life that witnesses to the forgiveness and grace of Christ, accomplished for us by the cross and the resurrection.
“Truly, truly, I say to you, whoever believes in me will also do the works that I do; and greater works than these will he do, because I am going to the Father. John 14:12 (ESV)
