John 14-8-10 - “Phillip sayth vnto him, Lord, shew vs the Father, and is sufficeth vs. Iesus saith vnto him, Have I bin so long time with you, and yet hast thou not knowen me, Phillip? He that hath seene me, hath seene the father, and how sayest thou then, Shew vs the father? Beleeuest thou not that I am in the father, and the father in mee? The words that I speake vnto you, I speak not of my selfe : but the Father that dwelleth in me, he doth the works.”
The closest disciples to Jesus before the resurrection just seemed to have so much trouble in understanding the relationship of Jesus, the Son, to God, the Father. This explanation to them, by Jesus is also something we also should take note of for our own relationship with the Father through the Son: 1) If we have seen Jesus through a personal encounter with the Living Christ we have then seen the Father. If we know the Son we know the Father; 2) We are to believe the words of Jesus and know that the Son is in the Father and the Father is in the Son. God the Father resides in the Son like he does in us through the Holy Ghost making our bodies the very temple of God; 3) Christ reveals that his acts are not of himself, but rather those of the Father. If we listen to these words we know to seek God and his works (or ways) for our life not our own ways.
Our choice is: do we do things God’s Way or do we choose to do things Our Way these are the only two choices we have. When we choose God’s Way we have chosen rightly and God will be pleased.
Amen, come Lord Jesus.
