Daily Share- He’s still going strong.
“And there are also many other things which Jesus did, which if they were recorded one by one, I suppose that even the world itself could not contain the books that would be written.”
John 21:25 AMP
This verse just encourages me on so many levels. It challenges me to look around and see really what all Jesus is doing right here right now. This verse was written in reference to the times after he was risen that he came to visit with the disciples. He came to show them that indeed he was still alive and well, and doing more than ever. That is still so true today.
I can’t help but think that if in such a short time, just a matter of a few years, Jesus did so many wonderful things that the world could not contain the books if they were all written down. That’s just amazing really. To think that many lives were transformed, diseases were healed, sins were forgiven, demons were cast out, blind were made to see, deaf made to hear, lame to walk, minds were changed, hearts were mended, dead were raised,provisions were made. I can’t even begin to really imagine all that went on. He preached to so many, and taught so many. How many fires were started in the lives of those who heard him? We will never really know what all he did in that short amount of time, only what we have the honor of reading about. We do however have access to what he’s doing now.
We have access to the books being written of his goodness today. We can hear testimonies from all over the world at the click of a button. We can travel anywhere at any time and see what he is doing in a particular part of the earth. He is still doing all those things he did before, only now, it’s not just limited to where his physical body is located. Think about that. He now has access to work throughout the earth simultaneously. So if he did so much in the earth while limited by geography, how much more is he doing now? He is working in every believers life every day.
Can you imagine if we all wrote our books on what he’s done just in our own lives and combined them together with all the other believers throughout time? It would be more than could be told in eternity. But because we know he is alive now, we will get the chance to spend eternity worshiping him for our book of his goodness. What an honor to know he is alive.
