In John 20:21 Jesus says “As the Father has sent me, I am sending you.”
Jesus himself has said that he is sending us to live a Spirit-filled life that declares the fullness of the Father’s love. I don’t know about you, but I want to live a life that mirrors Jesus’ life — a life that demonstrates God’s glory everywhere I go and helps people to encounter Him through the good news of the gospel and demonstrations of his power.
Again, this has everything to do with us. We do have that ability, thanks to the resurrection power of the Spirit that lives within us. Demonstrating the power of the gospel can be as simple as showing concern for someone’s pain, bringing over a meal, spending time with a loved one who is in the hospital, or being a friend to someone who’s lonely.
Jesus followed up his messages by healing the sick and performing miracles. In large and small ways, we have the power to be someone’s miracle every day of the week. Ask the Father, who sees everything, to point out ways you can be the hands and feet of Jesus and expand the influence of the kingdom in your sphere of influence today.
