I Think Jesus May Have Meant These Words

12 I assure you that whoever believes in me will do the works that I do. They will do even greater works than these because I am going to the Father. 13 I will do whatever you ask for in my name, so that the Father can be glorified in the Son. 14 When you ask me for anything in my name, I will do it. (John 14:12-14, CEB)

The question is this: Am I going to believe what Jesus said? Am I going to appropriate these bold words into my own life?

There is a place of radical dependence where God calls me. A place where I am dependent on his provision. Do I trust these words? Do I trust him?

  1. Dan.

    Until you started posting about him, I hadn’t fully read any Willard’s Books, only a reader from college. Your posts perked my interest and I picked up his book on provision today, and look forward to reading it.

  2. Let me know what you think. That one is a good book made up of several essays and talks he gave. In my opinion, “The Divine Conspiracy” is his finest.
