GREATER WORKS THAN THESE
By: Ferd Sebastian

John,14:12 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.

Here are just a few of the works that Jesus did. He raised a man that was dead for three days, He healed the sick, He commanded demons out. He forgave sins. We can do greater works than that? Jesus says that we can.

I thought about this for many years. I wanted to fulfill all that Jesus had for me. What could be greater? My first thought was that Jesus could speak to only so many at one time and at one place. We have TV and Radio. We can speak to hundreds of thousands. But that is not greater. That is just more.

What is it that we can do that was greater than Jesus? Then I knew. What is the greatest miracle in the world? SALVATION! To lead another to Christ. To save his soul so that he might have eternal life. That is the biggest miracle. That is what Jesus meant.

That if you confess with your mouth, "Jesus is Lord" and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. [Rom. 10:9]

You see Jesus never did that. He could not. Jesus had not paid the price yet. You see before Jesus paid the price for our salvation it was impossible for humans to be saved except through the law. Look what Jesus did for us.

Gal. 3:13 Christ hath redeemed us from the curse of the law, being made a curse for us: for it is written, Cursed is every one that hangeth on a tree.

Acts, 13:39 And by him all that believe are justified from all things, from which you could not be justified by the law of Moses.

Romans, 6:14 For sin shall not have dominion over you: for you are not under the law, but under grace.

Romans, 8:2 For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus hath made me free from the law of sin and death.

Romans, 10:4 For Christ is the end of the law so that there may be righteousness for every one that believeth.

THANK YOU JESUS!

So now Jesus has taken this most precious gift ... The biggest miracle ... Salvation! And has given it to us. This is our work. The work that only we can do through Jesus. And He has given us this commandment.

Mark, 16:15 And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature. 16:16 He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but he that believeth not shall be damned.

Let us never fail Jesus. We have the ability to save another soul for Jesus and we were commanded to use it. So always be ready to give the word of life. ... 2jesus
