John 5:26, For as the Father hath life in himself; so hath he given to the Son to have life in himself. They are one, but each had his own will. It was the only way the operation to make the “Word” flesh to walk among us could work. God would need an example of man keeping his will on the earth, while in the flesh. So Jesus would come, and set the example of how to do it. The Son is one with the Father because he came forth from the Father; however, the Son being made flesh would have the thorn in his flesh of possibly having his soul made corruptible like a man can, and keeping the will of God perfect at the same time: Now that’s a pickle. This would be even more difficult in the flesh because by nature the flesh qualifies no one to be good: no one except the Father.
Listen, Jesus saved us from eternal death, but the Father really wanted us to know him too. Jesus talks about it in John 17:8, For I have given unto them the words which thou gavest me; and they have received them, and have known surely that I came out from thee, and they have believed that thou didst send me. John 6:38, For I came down from heaven, not to do mine own will, but the will of him that sent me. Jesus was happy to do the will of the Father, but now he wants to get back to the Glory of old that he had with the Father. We should be glad that the Father wants us to know him: Jesus makes it sound so one of a kind. Listen to him, John 17:4-5, “I have glorified thee on the earth: I have finished the work which thou gavest me to do. And now, O Father, glorify thou me with thine own self with the glory which I had with thee before the world was.” Jesus is like, yeah, all this fullness of God in bodily form, and every knee must bow stuff are great, but I am so glad to get back to the glory we had before all of this happened.
I tell you what, if the Father wants me to know him, well game been on. I got a head start, and now like Jesus, I’m coming for all I can handle. Why don’t you come too, and just flow, flow on, flow with me sons to Father. OK, that’s enough, I get carried away sometimes since he’s my all and all. I just really love the Father.
