The Son and the Father


“Very truly I tell you, the Son can do nothing by himself; he can do only what he sees the Father doing, because whatever the Father does the Son also does. 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.” John 5:19 and 20 show us the deep dependence of the Son on the Father and the deep love of the Father to the Son. Think about what it would be like to not have any of the distractions of the things of this world entering into our minds. Think about what it would be like to only see and hear things that are directly from God. This is the ultimate resting place for a weary soul – to be in perfect union with God the Father – with no inputs from the Satan, his world and our own flesh. Let us press on to this rest no matter how bad it may be or it may seem.
