“The Father loves the Son and shows Him all things that He Himself is doing” (John 5:20, NASB).
My Father, Ed Weiss, loved me and showed me what he was doing. He envisioned the radio and TV repair/car sound system installation business he started to be family owned and operated, maybe named Ed and Son’s someday. He would bring my brother Bill and I to work with him on Saturday’s and during the summer when we were teenagers. He taught me everything he knew about installing sound system equipment in automobiles. It kind of stuck, before joining the Army at 19, I did work for two other companies installing stereos in cars. In fact, when the Army Recruiter asked me what kind of job I wanted the only skill I thought I had was electronics.
Because our Heavenly Father loves Jesus, he shows Jesus everything he is doing! Jesus said, “I only do the works that I see the Father doing, for the Son does the same works as his Father” (John 5:19, TPT). Jesus honors and emulates the Father in everything he does.
Because our Heavenly Father loves you, he wants to show you everything he is doing also. In fact, Jesus, who likewise loves you, wants to help you hear and say what the Father is saying and see and do what the Father is doing like he does. They both want you to know them deeply and personally (Jn 17:3). They want to be so close that they want their Spirit to live within you, to lead and guide you into the pure way of living with them.
A crowd of people asked Jesus, “What shall we do, so that we may do the works of God?” Jesus replied, “This is the work of God, that you believe in Him [Jesus] whom He has sent” (John 6:28, 29, NASB).
Do you believe in and that God sent Jesus!
How can I help you know them now and better?
“Why would you strive for food that is perishable and not be passionate to seek the food of eternal life, which never spoils? I [Jesus], the Son of Man, am ready to give you what matters most, for God the Father has destined me for this purpose” (John 6:27, TPT).
