12/26/2012 John 5:30 I can of mine own self do nothing: as I hear, I judge: and my judgment is just; because I seek not mine own will, but the will of the Father which hath sent me.
Jesus came to this earth to do the Father's will. John 3:16 tells us that God so loved the world. God takes no pleasure in the punishment of the wicked, but He would rather have all mankind repent, accept Jesus, and live. Jesus came to earth so in sync with God our Father that He only spoke and did those things that God had Him say and do. Today we have the wonderful blessing here on earth to do those things that God would have us do and say, all by the Power of the Holy Spirit who leads us, teaches us, reminds us, Comforts us, and empowers us to live the Christian life, and be Witnesses. The Holy Spirit takes the Words of Jesus and the Father and gives them to us. Jesus said He will take of mine and give it unto you. So just like this verse tells us of Jesus speaking the Words of the Father, so we also can, through the power of the Holy Spirit, speak the Word that God speaks. With the Holy Spirit quickening us we will hold back our own words and wait for God's Word. We like Jesus seek not our own will, but the will of the Father, in every situation, and we know God's will is the best life for us and others.
Father we pray to be like Jesus and speak only your Words and do only that which you would have us to do. We pray for the fullness of the Holy Spirit working in our lives for life and service, and that we will be quickened so you will be Glorified. In Jesus name we pray.
