One of my main inspirations is people. People with their own stories and their questions. People that are searching for faith. When I started the Greater Things project, I started with research about what the Gospel of John meant with the promise of 'greater things'. Because, in the end, my opinion is in submission to the unspoken creed to which I live: the voice of God is authority.
The conclusion I found was that people are divided on the subject. Maye it's the diversity that shocked me.
The first person says that miracles are over.
The second person says that to do greater things, is to bring the Gospel.
The third person says that to do greater things, is to follow Jesus.
And then there is a minority, a minority that believes that God lives from glory to glory in the works He does for humanity.
The goal of this project is not to have answers. Finding answers just gives more questions. God gives more questions than answers. The goal of this project is to dream. What íf we could do greater things? What if Jesus actually said that we would do the things He did and more?
What if following Jesus results in greater miracles than raising the dead, walking on water and turning it into wine?
What if following Jesus results in greater promises than just a far away promise? What if the Kingdom of God is truly at hand?
What if following Jesus is following Him in searching for greater things?
