Very truly I tell you, the one who believes in me will also do the works that I do – John 14: 12
When we believe in Jesus we believe in our redemption. While it invites us to a personal experience of redemption it also calls us to make that experience experiential to others. Faith becomes no more a matter of personal experience any longer. Redemption no longer is individual, but collective and communitarian.
Our faith will make us people of great potential. Our personal proclamation of faith in Christ makes that potential real and active so that we may begin the work of Our Lord. Anyone who believes in Christ is called to do what Christ did, that is to bring healing, wholeness, compassion, kindness, love, forgiveness, acceptance and all such on one side while being steadfast in Godly things become challenging, repentant, forgiving and courageous on the other.
When your redemption becomes actualized, life will become powerful, not because of the wondrous things you to, but the wondrous person you turned out to be.
Strive for this when we commemorate the days when Christ became a wondrous person even for his enemies.
