Ours is Greater

The authority of Christ when he taught wasn’t so great as ours is today. He himself said, ‘Greater works than these will you do’ (John 14:12). He is the grain of mustard seed, but we are the bushes (Matt. 13:31,32). Accordingly he said, ‘They were unwilling to bear me, although I taught in a corner, but you must bear me throughout all the world.’ To preach Christ is to offend the flesh, but to preach the flesh is to offend Christ.

—Martin Luther
