Morning Meditation – Be, and Watch What Happens

“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…” (John 14:12, ESV)

A simple reflection today…yet, not easily understood…

Often, we interpret Jesus to mean that by our faith we will do the miraculous that He did, and even greater. So, we believe for it, work-up our faith for it, and hope for supernatural outcomes.

Allow me to readjust that process. Don’t hope for an outcome; do what Jesus did. He also said, “I can ONLY do what what I see my Father doing.” (John 5:19) Jesus didn’t chase miracles; he didn’t strategize their appearing. He pursued His Father and the “works” followed.

Simply be…love as you go…and watch God do the rest. Today, let His leading produce what He already desires to release!

  1. Amen! Daddy has taken up residence in us, and there is no room for anything else. As Holy Spirit transforms us into the image and likeness of love that we were created in, we naturally have no choice(or desire to do otherwise) than to obey Jesus and let His love in us save, heal and deliver those around us. He didn’t ask us to do it, and He didn’t tell us to ask God to do it – He simply told us to do it wherever we go.

  2. Looking at our society especially of late, there is arguably nothing more difficult than to love; the greatest commandment. Perhaps the greatest miracle (greater work)?
    Thank for the timely word, Pastor.

    I also often think “love” or “love like Jesus” and the miracles come…I like your simple point – one that I CAN do – pursue The Father…..by ththe way I was disappointed to realize it was Saturday when I was anticipating your posting…thanks for the food!

  4. There are times, like now, were I believe the “miracles” can be a stumbling block, because man looks for the result instead of the very heart of the One who Reigns on High.
    Today’s editation helps to better understand the one leaper out of ten returning to Jesus. Are we seeking Jesus or what Jesus can offer?
