Stop saying that!
We use the phrase as an excuse when we don’t see things happen.
Jesus was a human, born of woman, grew from a child to a man, got baptized by John the Baptist, and left the Jordan River filled with the Holy Spirit. Then he modeled the Christian life for 3 years. He said to follow Him, so I know it’s possible.
In John 14:12, Jesus said:
Truly, truly, I say to you, whoever believes in me will also do the works that I do; and greater works than these will he do, because I am going to the Father.
He didn’t say only a few would do those works. He said whoever believes. That’s all of us, Church. He didn’t say give it a shot and see what happens. He didn’t say try it, and if it doesn’t work, don’t ever try it again.
No, He said if we believe in Him, we will do the things He did, and greater.
I don’t know about you, but I want that. All of it.
Just because we don’t see the results we were looking for, it doesn’t change the truth of His words.
Faith is looking past our experiences and believing the words written in red are true.
