Greater Things

It's been a while since I wrote anything here... Doesn't mean I haven't been thinking...   I love listening to the Bible.  Somehow I can comprehend more by listening than by reading.

Anyway, today as I was listening to the Bible while driving I heard the story of Elijah and Elisha again.  I couldn't help but think about something Jesus told His disciples as I was listening to this story in 2Kings.  Elijah told Elisha that if he were with him when he was taken up into heaven he would have a  double portion of his spirit. And so Elisha was with Elijah and saw him taken up.  Then Elisha takes the mantle, calls on the God of Elijah and strikes the river Jordan and it opens just as it did for Elijah.

Jesus told His disciples in John 14:12 that they would do greater things than Jesus did and they also watched Him ascend into heaven.  He didn't say they had to see Him ascend but, they were.  Hmmm! There must be something about being with the master!! Then there is something about acting on what He says...
