John 14:1-14 – Powerful of Powerless?

John 14:1-14 – Powerful of Powerless?

One New Year’s Day, in the Tournament of Roses parade, a beautiful float suddenly sputtered and quit. The truck that was pulling it was out of gas. The whole parade was held up until someone could get a can of gas. The amusing thing was this float represented the Standard Oil Company. With all its vast oil resources, its truck was out of gas.

That’s a great illustration of the powerlessness of many in the church today. We have all the resources of heaven available to us and yet we all seem to have no power to do the things of God. In today’s text, we will hear Jesus say that “he who believes in Me, the works that I do he will do also; and greater works will he do because I go to My Father.” Not many of us can say that statement is a description of our earthly work for the Kingdom. So let’s examine this text carefully today to learn how we can move from being powerless in our Christianity to being powerful workers for Christ.

God bless our study today,
