Jesus is our awesome role model. I used to think that He’s life was exceptional because He is the Son of God. No wonder He could do the things He did. But then I realized that He came as the Son of Man. He laid down His Godly powers and lived as we live, to show us how. He lived an exceptional life because He looked to God in all things.
That kind of exceptional life can be ours if we do the same thing. He said, Most assuredly, I say to you, he who believes in Me, the works that I do he will do also; and greater works than these he will do, because I go to My Father. (Jhn 14:12)
Jesus walked in great power because He was obedient to what God wanted Him to do. Every time we agree with God and do what He is leading in, power follows. Blind eyes open. Deaf ears hear. Cancer is eradicated. Lives are changed.
All we have to do is look where God is looking and follow His lead. You have to be sensitive in your spirit to follow Him. You have to be filled with His Spirit to release His power. This is not impossible, it’s easy. When you are faced with a situation, do what Jesus did. He looked to God and did what He was led to do. Boom. Power to heal. It works. Trust me.
But Jesus also walked in love. But when He saw the multitudes, He was moved with compassion for them, because they were weary and scattered, like sheep having no shepherd. (Mat 9:36) Jesus was not on a power trip. In fact, He usually told people not to mention Him after He healed them.
He came with a heart full of God’s great plan — to release a kingdom where we are fully sanctified and free to live with God. He did not berate those who wanted more of God. He called them closer. He had compassion on them. He loved them dearly, as we should.
1Corinthians 13 is all about the amazing aspects of what love really is. Love is patient and kind. If you stop right there and walk in that, you will change lives. Add to that meekness and humility, holiness, truth, and faith, and you can change the world.
Start first with love. Allow God to change you and shift out everything that prevents you from loving. Then release the power of His presence and you will do greater works than these.
