It wasn’t that Jesus was a great man or teacher—he certainly was those things, but more importantly, he was God in the flesh. He lived with the very authority of God at his disposal. The wisdom, the healing and the other miracles were not smoke and mirrors—they were simply God’s power and authority extended to and through his son.
Nothing that Jesus did was too amazing for God. Nothing that Jesus did really pointed to Jesus. Instead, he always pointed back at the Father, the true power and authority. It was the fact that God loved men and wanted to be a part of men’s lives, that spurred Christ’s coming. Jesus wanted men to understand and desire to connect to God personally. In God, they could find peace and purpose offered nowhere else.
Jesus still offers that to us today, not with smoke and mirrors, but with the power of the Father. We have the same access that Jesus has to the father, we simply must follow the Lord and trust him to protect, provide and transform us into his chosen. We do not have to look far and wide for God, he is right here, right now–if we simply will choose to follow him.
God Bless You
Jesus answered: “Don’t you know me, Philip, even after I have been among you such a long time? Anyone who has seen me has seen the Father. How can you say, ‘Show us the Father’? 10 Don’t you believe that I am in the Father, and that the Father is in me? The words I say to you I do not speak on my own authority. Rather, it is the Father, living in me, who is doing his work. 11 Believe me when I say that I am in the Father and the Father is in me; or at least believe on the evidence of the works themselves. 12 Very truly I tell you, whoever believes in me will do the works I have been doing, and they will do even greater things than these, because I am going to the Father. 13 And I will do whatever you ask in my name, so that the Father may be glorified in the Son. 14 You may ask me for anything in my name, and I will do it
