Grow to your full stature

Paul thinks you can get as tall as Jesus. You know, walking on water, raising the dead, feeding crowds with five loaves and two fish. That kind of thing.

But Paul wasn't alone in this perspective. Jesus himself said you can do more than he did.

That's a lot! The only way to find out whether Jesus is right or not is to start trying to do things that others think are impossible.

If you want to reflect more on this topic, watch the video below or see Deuteronomy 5:32-33, Ephesians 4:11-13, and John 14:12-14.

God, please help us to believe what's possible. Thank you. Amen.
