No one can say, “I’ve never done anything wrong.”
We are all in the same sinful boat. Nobody on earth is holier or more
loved by the Father than anyone else.
It is the same grace that lifts us all, some people have just taken hold
of more than others have, that’s all.
As long as you keep someone on a pedestal, you will not attain what
is totally available to you also.
In the upside-down Kingdom, it is the person who receives the
most help that is the greatest. In the kingdom of this world, that
person is the most pathetic. Go figure.
The branch that stays connected to the Vine bears the most fruit.
“I tell you the truth, anyone who believes in me will do the same works I have done, and even greater works, because I am going to be with the Father. You can ask for anything in my name, and I will do it, so that the Son can bring glory to the Father. Yes, ask me for anything in my name, and I will do it!”
Do any of us honestly believe a word of this???
Let alone experience one quark of it?
The key of course is so that the Son can bring glory to the Father.
[Before you go wondering why you are not receiving that easy, health-filled, money-soaked life you keep asking for…]
“Anyone who trusts in me will do the works the I am doing.”
He said that. I’m serious. Really. That happens.
I’m doin’ this. Watch me. For the glory of the Father.
“Anyone who loves me will be loved by my father, and I will love them and show myself to them.”
