I’ve often heard people asking about how they can know the true character of God, saying things like “God works in mysterious ways”.
This is a silly thing to say really, as if we want to know the character of God we simply have to read the Gospels.
But the Gospels do not tell us about God you may be saying, well, actually they do.
A quick read through the Gospel of John will show you what I mean.
Jesus said that He came to do the meat of the Father, and to finish His work (John 4 v 34).
Jesus said that He could only do what He saw His Father do (John 5 v 19).
Jesus said He did not come to do His own will, but the will of His Father (John 6 v 38).
Jesus said that His doctrine was not His won, but that of Him who sent Him (John 7 v 16).
Jesus said that if you knew Him you would know the Father (John 8 v 19).
Jesus said He did the things that pleased the Father (John 8 v 29).
Jesus only ever said and did what His Father wanted Him to do and sent Him to do.
Being the express image of His Father (Hebrews 1 v 3) means that if we see Jesus doing something then we know God does it.
And also if Jesus does not do something we also know that Father God will not do it.
Speak this out today….”Thank you Lord that we can know your true character through looking to Jesus”.
John 4 v 34…..Jesus saith unto them, My meat is to do the will of him that sent me, and to finish his work
