Even Greater Works Part I by Hazel Tiggs
John 14:12 (NKJV) 12 "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.
Jesus said in the above Scripture that not only will you and I do the works that He did while on earth, but even greater works than what He did. Now Jesus did some very powerful works of God that was the result of the people believing in what He taught them. He gave sight to the blind, made the lame to walk, cleansed the lepers, the deaf was made to hear; the dead was raised up and He preached the gospel to the poor. (Matthew 11:5.)
When I think about Jesus the Son of God and you and me the children of God, I picture us as having the same powerful authority and ability as the Lord Jesus Christ, since you and I have been predestined by the Father to be molded into the very image of the Son.
Romans 8:29 (AMP) 29 For those whom He foreknew [of whom He was [a]aware and [b]loved beforehand], He also destined from the beginning [foreordaining them] to be molded into the image of His Son [and share inwardly His likeness], that He might become the firstborn among many brethren.
Our conformity to the image of the Christ is not on the outside, but is our spiritual image on the inside that is alike that of God the Father. The Father is a Spirit and the Father of Spirits. (John 4.24.) (Hebrews 12:9)
Jesus said that it was the Father in Him that preformed the works that He did. Therefore, the works that Jesus did came from within Him. Jesus worked from the inside out; from His spirit man, His real self Who was in the image and likeness of the Father. This is the way God designed you and me to operate, doing the greater works.
Jesus has gone back to the Father expecting you and I to finish the work that He started by our doing even greater ones. What are the greater works that you and I should and can do? How do you and I work from the inside out to perform these greater works?
