John 14:12 - "“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."
Many Believers think miracles and power are for extra special anointed people of God. Many get hung up on the idea that Jesus did miracles as God, not man. He said of Himself in John 5:19, "The Son can do nothing of Himself."He had set aside His divinity. He did miracles as man in right relationship with God because He was setting forth a model for us -- something for us to follow.
If He did miracles as God, we would all be extremely impressed, but we would have no compulsion to emulate Him. But when we see that God has commissioned us to do what Jesus did—and more—then we realize that He put self-imposed restrictions on Himself to show us we could do it, too. Jesus lived in constant confrontation and conflict with the world around Him, because Kingdom logic goes against carnal logic.
This is a good time to ask yourself, are you living in conflict with this world? Are you bringing the reality of Heaven, not just the doctrine of Heaven, to your neighbors or co-workers? How is your life contradicting the way life works for most people in your city? How are you ushering in Kingdom reality wherever you go?
