Thought of the Day May 24, 2021 "Do the works I do."

By 10:10 AM

This week we continue to reflect on the Holy Spirit, especially some of the gifts of the Spirit, which Jesus and the Apostles evidenced. These gifts are meant to be normative for Jesus’ disciples. Recall what Jesus said at the Last Supper. “Amen, amen, I say to you, whoever believes in me shall also do the works that I do. And greater things than these shall he do, for I go to the Father” (John 14:12). Mark confirms this giving us, from his perspective, Jesus’s last message to the Apostles before his Ascension. “Now these signs will accompany those who believe. In my name, they shall cast out demons. They will speak in new languages. They will take up serpents, and, if they drink anything deadly, it will not harm them. They shall lay their hands upon the sick, and they will be well” (Mark 16:17-18).

 

In each case, those who believe in Jesus will be able to do these signs and wonders in the name of Jesus by the power of the Holy Spirit.

 

What are some of the works which Jesus did in the power of the Holy Spirit, which he wants us to be open to, following the lead of the Spirit? Come, Holy Spirit, come! Pray for a fresh anointing of the Holy Spirit so you can do the works that Jesus desires.
