Commands of Christ: 86

Believe that I am in the Father and the Father is in Me.

“Believe me when I say that I am in the Father and the Father is in me; or at least believe on the evidence of the works themselves.  Very truly I tell you, whoever believes in me will do the works I have been doing, and they will do even greater things than these, because I am going to the Father.  And I will do whatever you ask in my name, so that the Father may be glorified in the Son.  You may ask me for anything in my name, and I will do it.”  John 14:11-14

This is one of the times when I find Jesus’ words a challenge to believe.  He says that if we believe in Him, we will do greater works than He did.  Forgive my incredulity, but really?  Yes, really.  I may not be able to explain it, but it’s true.  We will glorify the Lord by doing these works.  Lord, I believe, help my unbelief.  Glorify Yourself in me and in those works.  Help me so clearly and fully discern Your will and Your ways that I might recognize the good works You have prepared beforehand for me to walk in, and let me not miss doing a single one of them.
