Father and Son

If you wish to know how God works in your life, know more about the works of Jesus. 

I highly recommend reading today’s Gospel reading. (You can read John 5:17-30 here. Read it word by word and verse by verse in order to appreciate it and get the most out of it.)

Today’s reading tells us that the works of the Son are what He sees the Father is doing:

“Jesus answered and said to them, ‘Amen, amen, I say to you, a son cannot do anything on his own, but only what he sees his father doing; for what he does, his son will do also.’” — John 5:19

If you wish to know how God works in your life, know more about the works of Jesus. 

From the readings, we can read that the works of Jesus are life-giving and judgment — works that the Jews traditionally attributed to God alone. But Jesus tells us that He gave the authority to give life and to exercise judgment to His Son.

That is why Jesus deserves the honor and praise we give to the Father.

That is why we are called to a relationship with the Father through His Son, Jesus Christ.

Know the Father by knowing His Son.
