It’s All About the Relationship

Then Jesus answered and said to them, “Most assuredly, I say to you, the Son can do nothing of Himself, but what He sees the Father do; for whatever He does, the Son also does in like manner.” (John 5:19)

I can of Myself do nothing. As I hear, I judge; and My judgment is righteous, because id do not seek My own will but the will of the Father who sent Me. (John 5:30)

Then Jesus said to them, “When you lift up the Son of Man, then you will know that I am He, and that I do nothing of Myself; but as My Father taught Me, I speak these things. And He who sent Me is with Me. The Father has not left Me alone, for I always do those things that please Him.” (John 8:28-29)
Jesus did only those things He saw the Father doing, and said only those things He heard the Father saying. The ability to see what the Father was doing and hear what the Father was saying came out of fellowship with the Father. It's all about the relationship.

How is your relationship with the Father? Are you taking the time?
