Day 11 - John 5:19-20A


John 5:19-20A

19 Jesus gave them this answer: “Very truly I tell you, the Son can do nothing by himself; he can do only what he sees his Father doing, because whatever the Father does the Son also does. 20 For the Father loves the Son and shows him all he does.

How easy is it to hear God’s voice or know his will in the con- fusion of life? Jesus lived with a deep intimacy with God the Father such that he only did what the Father told him to do.

He was so dependent on God that he said that everything he did was a result of God’s power. He was so surrendered to God that he said his greatest desire was to do the will of his Father. He was so con dent of God that neither stormy seas nor hostile crowds could shake his poise. The river of life owed strong through this man Jesus as it had never owed through anyone before him. And when he died, the veil that kept people out of the Holy of Holies—the veil that symbolized separation between God and human beings—was torn in two. (GICTYT, p. 24)

How surrendered are you to God’s will and his purposes for you?

Do you trust God enough to do whatever he calls you to do?
