Like Father, Like Son; Like Son, Like Believer

Discussion in 'Thoughts for Today' started by Nanon, Nov 2, 2014.

  1. Sharing from Bob Hoekstra's commentaries:
    We do not live the Christian life because of us. Our resource is not me, myself and I. Our unfailing resource is the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. If we shall feed on the Son like the Son depended on the Father, we shall live even as the Son lived on earth. Jesus depended on the Father; the Father worked through Him. We now feed on the Son; that is, we find our nurture and nourishment in the fruit of Christ's life, death, and resurrection to glory for us. We believe in and count on Jesus Christ to be our all in all. We live because of Him. Just like the Father worked through the Son, so now the Son wants to work through us. He wants us to get to know Him in that same manner. As the very one who lives in us, Christ will glorify His Father by His work of redemption in us.
