What You Will Become

“The great question here is, not what you will get, but what you will become. The greatest wealth you can ever get will be in yourself. Take your burdens, and troubles, and losses, and wrongs, if come they must and will, as your opportunities, knowing that God has girded you for greater things than these.” Gary Garner

“Very truly I tell you, whoever believes in me will do the works I have been doing, and they will do even greater things than these, because I am going to the Father.” (John 14:12)

Greater things than Jesus did? Not be by our abilities, of course, but through Jesus dwelling in you–his Spirit helping you to will and to do his purposes. To do so we must fundamentally change–become something purer and better than we can imagine.
