[Jesus said,] “The words I speak are not my own, but my Father who lives in me does his work through me.” JOHN 14:10
“I have given you an example to follow. In human flesh, I said and did what I observed from the Father, who was living within Me. You too can do and say what you observe from the Holy Spirit who is living within you. When you are in fellowship with Me, the lines between us begin to blur. You will have difficulty knowing where you end and I begin, or vice versa. That’s how it is in intimate relationships. The bond creates a unity that makes distinguishing the source of thoughts and desires extremely difficult —and completely unnecessary. When you live in closeness to Me, you can speak of many thoughts and desires as ‘ours’ —not yours or Mine, but ours. We live and breathe together.
“I have also given you a deep truth in this statement. I’ve shown you the unbreakable link between words and works. They aren’t distinct, as if you can accept the words without living them out. They are two sides of the same coin. To accept them is to live them; to live them is to accept them. Yes, plenty of people have mouthed My words without really embracing them, and as you know, this hypocrisy angers and disappoints Me. But their actions have clearly shown that they did not fully understand or accept the words. Those who truly believe I am Lord will do what I say because My words matter to them. They care for My heart.
“Let unity with Me be your goal. Don’t seek to speak or follow either your words or My words as much as you seek to follow our words. My Spirit lives in you. Your life is not your own. We function together. I live in you and do My work in you, speaking through you, and to you, and for you. As you draw close to Me, you and I become we .”
Let's Pray: Jesus, I would love to know how You heard the Father and how He did His work in You. Show me how that works. Draw me into that kind of unity. Take Care, God Bless, And Make It A Great Day!
