We might read the gospels and see all the crazy things Jesus did and we may think to ourselves, “I could never do that.” And yet Jesus has this to say:

“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

We learn from the example of Saul/Paul (and numerous others) that it is folly to utter the phrase “I could never do that.”  In fact, it is heresy.  It represents a denial of the Lordship of Jesus and a capitulation to the American narrative of personal comfort.
