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. John 14:12
If Jesus said it, so it is. Believers are called to do greater works than he did; but what are these greater works? Are we supposed to walk on water as He walked on the Sea of Galilee? Are we supposed to raise the dead as He raised Lazarus from the tomb? Or are we supposed to stop storms as He was waken up from sleep and He stopped the raging storm on the sea. What are the greater works Jesus said we would do?
Many people think that these works are the greater works Jesus talked about. Others conclude that the absence of miracles proves their lack of faith. Some go to the extent of ignoring every other ministry in the body of Christ and concentrate on miracles as the evidence of God’s true calling. Truly all the miracles Jesus did were and are still great works, but they are not the greater works Jesus talked about.
