Together in mission

God_The_Father_Cope_06

“But Jesus replied, “My Father is always working, and so am I. So Jesus explained, “I tell you the truth, the Son can do nothing by himself. He does only what he sees the Father doing. Whatever the Father does, the Son also does.”    John 5:17.19

Jesus indicated through His life that He was joining the Father in His mission.  He announced that He had come not to do His own will, but the will of the Father who had sent Him.  To know the Father’s will, Jesus said He watched to see what the Father was doing.

 Don’t you believe that I am in the Father and the Father is in me? The words I speak are not my own, but my Father who lives in me does his work through me. Just believe that I am in the Father and the Father is in me. Or at least believe because of the work you have seen me do.           John 14:10-11

Jesus did not take the initiative but depended on the Father to show Himself and what He was doing and He bore witness to the Father and the Father worked through Him.

 “I have revealed you to the ones you gave me from this world. They were always yours. You gave them to me, and they have kept your word.  Now they know that everything I have is a gift from you,  for I have passed on to them the message you gave me. They accepted it and know that I came from you, and they believe you sent me.”               John 17:6-8
