“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,” Jesus said. This statement proved true in the apostolic age, and it still proves true today.
Following on yesterday's broadcast, “The Gospel of the Holy Spirit,” Sister Alexandra expands on these truths. Then, she shares the story of Helen Ewan.
Baptized in the Holy Spirit at age 14, Helen lived a common life filled with the manifest presence of God. She won souls to Jesus on campus, at streetcar stops, and outside bars. Her prayer life supported hundreds of missionaries and her local church. Though she died at the age of 22, this young woman's service for Jesus accomplished more than the combined work of thousands of Christians not baptized in the Holy Spirit.
Will you give all to Jesus, and let him use you in his service as he chooses? If so, whether your life is ordinary or apostolic, you will do the works Jesus did: teaching, making disciples, and even healing or casting out demons!
