Sermon Illustrations

Surely this is what Jesus meant when he said, when he said in Jn. 14:12 (slide) “I tell you the truth, anyone who has faith in me will do what I have been doing. He will do even greater things than these, because I am going to the Father.”

Jesus didn’t go to China, but our church has sent missions teams into China. Jesus didn’t go to the Cheyenne Indians, but we have sent teams to the Indians. Jesus didn’t go to Nashville or Philadelphia or DC, but we have sent in multiple teams to minister in each of those cities. Jesus didn’t tape any of his sermons so that people can listen to them on the internet. But we have uploaded sermons onto our website so people can listen to them from anywhere.

These are examples of the church being able with God’s grace to do even greater things than Jesus did.
