Be like Jesus or do what Jesus did?

It seems to me that  people struggle with Jesus, not because He has called us to follow Him but because what He has called us to is to do what He did.  Following Jesus, which is what most Christians think they are called to, means we admire the things that He did and that I try to learn more about the things that He said. 

But Jesus said this is not enough.  Simply following Him and honoring Him for His miracles was not all there was in the call to discipleship.

Most of us miss in the call of Jesus that He called us to do the things that He did.  In fact He said “you will do greater things than I do”.

The challenge for me is not following Jesus but doing what He did.  That scares me. 

Can you imagine what it would look like if even 10% of the followers of Jesus started to do what He did?

    somtimes it is a little like you read my mind. I have always thought that i was the only one scared to try and actually do as He did. It is hard enough somedays just to get my head around what He taught and then to have to take the step and try and really follow is unnerving at best. It is nice to have company as i bumble along.
