At every Olympics, world records are broken. At the Rio games, world records were set in the men's 400 meters, women's 10,000 meters, and the women's hammer throw. No doubt, the next Olympics will see more records fall. After all, that's the point of the Olympic motto: Faster, Higher, Stronger.
The disciples weren't worried about setting a record. They were worried about surviving. Jesus had just told them he was going to the cross, news that devastated the disciples to the core. Then Jesus told them:
"I tell you the truth, anyone who has faith in me will do what I have been doing. He will do even greater things than these, because I am going to the Father." (John 14:12 NIV)
Greater things! What could Jesus possibly have meant by that? Find out this Sunday!
