Oh Lord, thank You for all that You have done for us on the cross. We were not able to be forgiven of our sins until You paid the penalty for our sins in Your suffering. This sacrifice is the greatest offering that men and women will ever know and come to understand when they look to You in faith. Surely, what You did for us on the cross, and while You were alive and well on earth, we could learn a lot from. If people would just lean on You, then they would come to realize all the great and many works You did for us. What I am amazed at now is that these works have not ended. You may have finished Your work on the cross, but Your works are continuing to pour out of every believer that puts their trust in You. You have said, we are able to do greater works because the comforter is with us now. Thank You, Lord. My faith is never complete unless the Holy Spirit is with me and I am out doing Your will. This is what brings me joy, not the will of my flesh. I can do and accomplish many things in this life, which is well and all for the praise and satisfaction of people, but all this is filthy rags in Your sight. Unless I am filled up with the Holy Spirit and living for You, then my works don’t matter. I can do and achieve many great things while I am alive, but if You are not being glorified in it, then it is all for my own boasting and not Your will. So please use me for Your kingdom. I know that my faith without Your works is dead. So breathe in me all my days the Holy Spirit, that Your spiritual gifts will come forth out of my life. It is my desire to be a blessing in Your kingdom for everyone that I come in contact with. I love You, Lord. I boast in my Lord and my Savior. Amen.
John 14:12-15 (KJV)
12 Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father.
13 And whatsoever ye shall ask in my name, that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son.
14 If ye shall ask any thing in my name, I will do it.
15 If ye love me, keep my commandments.
As believers, Jesus wants to do many great works through us. Our faith in Christ is realized when we begin to do as He says.
