REVEALED WORD TODAY
// Read: John 3:35; 5:19-20 //
35 The Father loves the Son and has placed everything in his hands.
19 Jesus gave them this answer: “Very truly I tell you, the Son can do nothing by himself; he can do only what he sees his Father doing, because whatever the Father does the Son also does. 20 For the Father loves the Son and shows him all he does. Yes, and he will show him even greater works than these, so that you will be amazed.
Jesus Christ left us an example or pattern of what should be our relationship with the Father, He said, “The son can of himself do nothing but whatsoever he sees the Father do, he does”. He always works with the approval of the Father though He is co-equal and co-eternal with Him. He was submissive to the instructions and directions of the Father and He was finally exalted by the Father. In fact, in the book of Hebrew 5:17, the Scripture says “Although he was a son but He learnt obedience by the things that he suffered….”
PRAYER: Almighty God, give me the spirit of obedience in relating with you.
