Week 3 | Empowered To Be More | Day 3


It is clear that Jesus wants us to have a “greater than” life, one that is fully satisfying that greatly impacts the lives of those around us.  We often attempt to disqualify ourselves and not fully embrace all God has for us because of sin, doubt, or our own insecurities. We live greater than lives when we live in the truth of what God says is ours in him. Jesus said that we his followers would do even great things in his name. 

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.” Imagine what this kind of life in Christ could look like for us. He gave us his Holy Spirit to empower us to do amazingly and abundantly more than Jesus did while he was here. This is simply mind boggling and yet it is what he promises to those who put their total faith and trust in him.
