It’s after Easter.
The disciples world has turned upside down. Their friend, rabbi, the Messiah was crucified on a Friday morning. And then on Sunday morning, he rose from the dead. Imagine what was going through the head and through their hearts.
I know I’d need some time to sort things out. To turn confusion and doubt into a spark for my response.
Before he was to be crucified, in some of His last conversations with His friends, Jesus said some interesting things pertaining to this moment. One statement in particular has grabbed my attention:
“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 17:12-14
It’s these words that we are going to start a conversation with. We’re going to look at what it means to live a life full of these “Greater Things” thatJesus said was available to us. We’re going to see how a movement began that has changed the world forever, and continues to do so.
Join us for our new series, “Greater Things”, a study of the early church and the abundant life that’s available to us all.
