John 14:12-14 (KJV)
12 "Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father.
13 "And whatsoever ye shall ask in my name, that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son.
14 "If ye shall ask any thing in my name, I will do it."
Any time that you see words like these two “verily, verily, " or "truly, truly," repeated you need to take note that they are not being said one after the other just to make a poetic sound. Nope, Jesus is making a very important statement that has great promises that apply to you and to me. Hallelujah!
Jesus, having firsthand knowledge and having the authority when saying “Verily verily,” gives us a strong claim to a truth that our world takes for granted. Some claim that these words were just for the deciples in that day. They go even further saying that Jesus had an audacious attitude on the matter. Listen closely, my friends. He said “I.” Who said "I?" Jesus said it, “I say unto you, He that believers on me."
Do you believe in Him? Hey! Can I get a shout out of somebody here who says that he or she is a believer?
Father, teach us how to truly, truly hear what Jesus said to them and to us living today. In Jesus' name, Amen.
Blessings on the journey, and remember the best is yet to come.
