Greater Works

“Verily verily I say to you, he that believes on Me, the works that I do, shall he do also and
greater works than these shall he do because I go to My Father.”  John 14:12

In the new birth, we are made partakers of the “divine nature.”  Adam never attained this. 
In redemption, we have come higher.  Now, “Christ” is in us.  It is not just the will of the Father
being done through one person in one place at one time.  Rather, it is the will of the Father being
done in the multiplied lives of all those (His Body) who have totally submitted themselves to Jesus,.

The “greater works” then, is the corporate expression of His will being done. 
Jesus, “the light of the world” will increasingly light the entire atmosphere of the world,
as His resurrection glory begins to shine out through the corporate Body of Christ.
