John 14: 10 (NIV) – Don’t you believe that I am in the Father, and that the Father is in me? The words I say to you are not just my own. Rather, it is the Father, living in me, who is doing his work.
The words that Jesus taught originated in the Father. Jesus taught with knowledge on par with the theologians of His day as well as with superiority (John 7:46; Luke 2:47; Luke 4:16-22). It was His daily union with His Father in prayer, their close relationship, that enabled Jesus to be the conduit of truth, the channel through which God manifested Himself to humanity. Today it is our close relationship with the Lord through our prayer life that enables us to walk in wisdom in a culture that continues to disintegrate. We must live “in Christ” (I Cor. 1:30) and that deep connection will provide for us daily wisdom, holiness, righteousness and redemption. Everything we have need of pertaining to “life and godliness” comes to us through Jesus (II Peter 1:3). What do you need today?
