GREATER WORKS AND ANSWERED PRAYERS
John 14:10-14 / Pastor David VanAcker
10 … The words that I say to you I do not speak on my own authority, but the Father who dwells in me does his works. 11 Believe me that I am in the Father and the Father is in me, or else believe on account of the works themselves. 12 “Truly, truly, I say to you, whoever believes in me will also do the works that I do; and greater works than these will he do, because I am going to the Father. 13 Whatever you ask in my name, this I will do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son. 14 If you ask me anything in my name, I will do it.
You’ll do “greater works” than Jesus and Jesus will do for you “whatever you ask” in His name. That sounds like a remarkably good deal, doesn’t it?! There’s more to it than just that, but Jesus’ words are good news indeed.

The big idea in this passage is that on account of being one with the Father, on account of His sacrificial death being accepted by the Father, and for the Father’s glory, Jesus’ followers will do marvelous works and have our prayers answered. Consequently, the main takeaways are for all of God’s people to courageously obey Jesus and pray expectantly to Jesus.
