Embracing the Impossible

In the annals of history, there are numerous instances where what seemed impossible became the norm. From the invention of the lightbulb to the advent of cars and airplanes, human ingenuity has defied expectations time and again. Yet, there's a particular statement, made over two millennia ago, that challenges our understanding of what's possible even today.

In the upper room where the Last Supper took place, Jesus uttered words that have echoed through the ages: "Very truly I tell you, whoever believes in me will do the works I have been doing, and they will do even greater things than these, because I am going to the Father" (John 14:12, NIV).

At first glance, this declaration might seem audacious, even improbable. How could mere mortals replicate the miracles and teachings of Jesus, let alone surpass them? Yet, embedded within these words lies a profound invitation to transcend the boundaries of what we deem possible.

Jesus isn't merely issuing a challenge; He's extending an invitation to participate in the divine work of redemption and restoration. It's a call to continue His legacy of love, healing, and sacrificial service. And the key? Faith.

Just as Edison, Benz, and the Wright brothers ventured beyond the confines of conventional wisdom, believers are called to tap into a reality beyond what our senses perceive. It's a reality where miracles aren't just relics of the past but possibilities of the present.

But this invitation isn't extended to the faint-hearted. It demands not only belief but also love—love expressed through obedience to His commands. And it's accompanied by the assurance of divine assistance in the form of God’s Holy Spirit, empowering us to live out the impossible.

So, how do we respond to this divine invitation? We start by asking. We ask, in the context of our daily lives, for works of healing, provision, and opportunity to do what Jesus did to flow forth. We ask with faith, knowing that our requests are made in alignment with His willingness.

As we step into the realm of what is only possible with Jesus promise and power, we become agents of transformation in our communities and beyond. We become bearers of hope, catalysts for change, and witnesses to the power of God in action.

As we celebrate Easter, let's not just simply remember Jesus' death and resurrection but also embrace His challenge to continue His work. Let's dare to believe that with faith, love, and the help of the Holy Spirit, the impossible becomes possible.

So, I leave you with a question: Are you ready to embrace the impossible and join Jesus in shaping history? If so, the journey begins with the ask of faith.

We continue the journey next week, in church and here on our blog! Join us then.
