30I can’t do anything on my own. As I listen to the Father, I make my judgments. My judgments are right because I don’t try to do what I want but what the one who sent me wants.
John 5:30| God’s Word Translation
Jesus was the person speaking in this scripture above, the scripture(s) preceding [before] this very John 5:30 made me understand that Jesus was speaking on the authority the son possesses. He made a key statement that the authority the son has was given to him by the father. (John 5: 20 – 27).
Jesus speech made me realise that even as a Christians we are sons of God and we need to be examples of Christlikeness.
18The Lord Almighty says, “I will be your Father, and you will be my sons and daughters.”
II Corinthians 6:18| God’s Word Translation
Seeing now that we are sons of God and Jesus Christ is our mentor [the one which we look up to]. We have to be like him in doing. He said he couldn’t do what the father is not doing so whatever you do ask yourself this question “can Jesus do this?”. Once your answer and my answer is no let do away with it.
Jesus doesn’t gamble so let us stop gambling!!!
Jesus doesn’t take a bribe so let us stop taking a bribe(s)!!!
Jesus never lies so let us stop lying!!!
Jesus is accountable and transparent so let us be transparent!!!
Be like Jesus and behave like him from today onward.
