John 5:31-38 (NLT) 31 “He has come from above and is greater than anyone else. We are of the earth, and we speak of earthly things, but he has come from heaven and is greater than anyone else.[i] 32 He testifies about what he has seen and heard, but how few believe what he tells them! 33 Anyone who accepts his testimony can affirm that God is true. 34 For he is sent by God. He speaks God’s words, for God gives him the Spirit without limit. 35 The Father loves his Son and has put everything into his hands. 36 And anyone who believes in God’s Son has eternal life. Anyone who doesn’t obey the Son will never experience eternal life but remains under God’s angry judgment.”
Often people ask why we can’t do the miracles Jesus did when He walked on the earth. Jesus was given the Spirit without limit. We have access to that same Spirit but because of our unbelief and disobedience in certain areas, we limit what God can do through us. Much like the Israelites limited God while in the desert. You can read about that in Psalm 78:40-42. It is up to us to dig deeper into the Word and learn to trust God with our whole heart. We are striving to get to the point that Jesus was at when He said that He did what He saw the Father do and He said what the Father said.
