Daily Bread – April 25, 2022 (The Second Day – Genesis 1:6-8) John 5:30 – I do not have power to do anything of Myself; according as I hear, I judge; and My judgment is righteous because I seek not My will, but the will of the Father who sent Me. Jesus Represented His Father Jesus made it very clear it was not His power at work when the miracles took place, but the Father’s, Who was the One working through Him. Jesus as an obedient Son had made Himself totally subject to the Father’s will and could do nothing of Himself (Philippians 2:7). The things Jesus did were done only to honor the Father and complete the work He was given. The relationship Jesus had with the Father compelled Him to only do those things He saw the Father do (John 5:19-20). In a world of so many opinions, the only way to sort out who was telling the truth and representing God was by signs and wonders. Therefore, the miraculous was the proof that He was sent by the Father (John 5:31-32, 36; Acts 10:38). The miracle ministry of Jesus and how it came to pass is revealed in the Gospels. When it was time for the ministry of Jesus to begin, He was first filled with the Holy Spirit. Jesus revealed in these passages of Scripture how His ongoing relationship and submission to the Father was the reason for the miracles. The miracles were the direct result of the will of the Father being revealed to Him, and then through His life. His relationship was one of total dependency upon the Father, for His will had been completely surrendered over to the Father’s direction. Blessings, Pastor Mark Spitsbergen
