John 8:28-29 ” So Jesus said, ‘When you have lifted up the Son of Man, then you will know that I am the One I claim to be and that I do nothing on My own but speak just what the Father has taught Me. The One who sent Me is with Me; He has not left Me alone, for I always do what pleases Him.’ “

If we are to follow in the footsteps of Jesus and emulate His character for the world to see…these verses have much to teach us. Jesus never spoke on His own accord, blurting out His personal opinions or biased remarks, but rather as John 14:24 tells us He said, “The Word that you hear is not Mine but the Father’s who sent Me.” In other words, the ear of the Lord was so well attuned to His Father’s voice it was all He heard. Next, Jesus never was willfully rebellious of His Father, but always submitted His Will to the Father’s in total agreement, without any hint of competition or disagreement. (John 6:38) So we are also to be obedient, desiring to please God. (I John 3:22) Finally, Jesus never doubted God…even though for one brief moment at the crucifixion He did feel the separation from His Father, (Matthew 27:46) Jesus ultimately knew He would glorify God in the end.
