Do not be troubled?
Isaiah 65-66/John 13-14
65:1 The LORD says, “People who never before inquired about me are now asking about me. I am being found by people who were not looking for me. To them I have said, ‘I am here!’”
:25 “The wolf and lamb will feed together. The lion will eat straw like the ox. Poisonous snakes will strike no more. In those days, no one will be hurt or destroyed on my holy mountain. I, the LORD, have spoken!”
13:3 Jesus knew that the Father had given him authority over everything and that he had come from God and would return to God. SO, he got up from the table, took off his robe, wrapped a towel around his waist, and poured water into a basin. Then he began to wash the disciples’ feet and to wipe them with the towel he had around him.
14:1 “Don’t be troubled. You trust in God, now trust in me.”
:21 “Those who obey my commandments are the ones who love me. And because they love me, my Father will love them and I will love them. And I will reveal myself to each one of them.”

“greater works” = prayer
In other words, the work it takes to just talk to Jesus and join Him in His intercession
