Jesus still teaches that the Father gives the Holy Spirit without limit (John 3:34), and any who have faith in Him will do even greater things than He has done. (John 14:12)
The bar of faith Jesus holds high, but no higher than He too lived:
- He who does not give up everything he has cannot be my disciple. (Luke 14:33)
- I tell you the truth, unless a kernel of wheat falls to the ground, it remains only a single seed. But if it dies it produces many seeds. (John 12:24)
- My life is not my own, I have been bought at a price. (1 Corinthians 6:19-20)
As with our good Lord who battled in Gethsemane, died on Golgotha, rose from the dead and ascended into heaven:
self-death today is the fertilizer of a wonderful harvest tomorrow.
