How does he operate? He looks to see what God is doing and He does it. Jesus has no desire to do his own thing. He doesn’t know what that means.
Jesus only knows that he must do what he sees his Father doing. That is all. That is it. That is the main thing about the main thing.
He challenges us to do the same. We must take on God’s own nature. God’s go for us is that we must do what we see God doing. That is all. That is it.
Here are the key ideas:
- Jesus sets to pattern for us about doing God’s will. That is the only thing that is important.
- God’s goal for us is be completely dependent on him.
- God is completely in charge.
“I’m telling you this straight. The Son can’t independently do a thing, only what he sees the Father doing.” ~~Jesus (John 5:19 The Message)
