We are called to be created in God's image, "And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness:" (Genesis 1:26). We are to be His sons and daughters, "And will be a Father unto you, and ye shall be my sons and daughters, saith the Lord Almighty." (II Corinthians 6:18). God wants us to be perfected to the fulness of the stature of His son Jesus Christ, "Till we all come in the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fulness of Christ:" (Ephesians 4:13).

Greater Works Than These Jesus Christ wanted followers to understand the concept of the Father living in and working through Him, because the same spiritual empowerment was to be made available to them to do greater works.
