This Week's Offertory Reading
SHARE THE LIFE: September 22
Written by John Stanton
Greater works. "Most assuredly, I say to you, he who believes in Me, the works that I do he will do also; and greater works than these he will do, because I go to My Father." John 14:12 As Jesus met with the twelve disciples in the upper room to begin the Passover celebration, He shared with them this vision for them to carry on the work that He had been doing. These works would be "greater" in that they were to have a more widespread influence throughout the world.
We are living today in the last age of earth's history when "the mystery of God would be finished, as He declared to His servants the prophets" (Rev 10:7). This mystery of the love of God as seen in the gospel of Jesus Christ is still being shared by His last day disciples. This is the calling of the remnant. This is my calling. This is your calling.
The Share the Life offering today is designed to directly impact the success of this work. Jesus encourages us with these words promised to all who actively engage in the works of Christ to share His gospel, "And whatever you ask in My name, that I will do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son." (John 14:13) Join with us in support of this work to glorify God through the efforts of our Bible work throughout the conference. The faithful service of these gospel workers will continue as long as we are willing to ask God to use us to help finish the works that Jesus began nearly 2,000 ago.
