Why do we so often seem to see or want to see
… a difference between Jesus and the Father?
Do we really think that they are different,
… that they deal differently with different situations?
Jesus is not our Advocate because of our needs,
… but because of what the Father gave Him to do,
and what He does on our behalf,
… He does because of His position not our condition!
And therefore the Father said …
And a voice came out of the cloud, saying,
“This is My beloved Son. Hear Him!”
Jesus in explaining this relationship said to His disciples …
“If you had known Me, you would have known My Father also;
and from now on you know Him and have seen Him.”
Philip said to Him, “Lord, show us the Father, and it is sufficient for us.”
Jesus said to him, “Have I been with you so long,
and yet you have not known Me, Philip?
He who has seen Me has seen the Father; so how can you say,
‘Show us the Father’?
Do you not believe that I am in the Father, and the Father in Me?
The words that I speak to you I do not speak on My own authority;
but the Father who dwells in Me does the works.
Jesus is not going to ask the Father
… to bless you because you need it,
but He will ask the Father to bless you because of His love for you!
Jesus is not going to work through you because you ask Him to,
… but He is going to work through you because the Father told Him to!
The Father, Jesus and the Holy Spirit are ONE,
… and what they decide, say and do,
will at all times be what they decide as ONE!
