Gathering in Christ
Then Jesus answered and said to them, “Most assuredly, I say to you, the Son can do nothing of Himself, but what He sees the Father do; for whatever He does, the Son also does in like manner.”
The secret of our LORD’s holy speech was that He habitually submitted is intelligence to His Father. Whenever problems pressed on the human side, as they did in the temptation, our LORD had within Himself the divine remembrance that every problem had been solved in counsel with His Father before He became incarnate and that therefore the one thing for Him to do was to do the will of the Father and to do it in His Father’s way. Satan tried to hasten Him, tried to make Him face the problems as a Man and do God’s will in His own way… We have to keep in the light that God is in, not in the rays of the light of our experience…. We have to be specialists in devotion to Jesus Christ and in nothing else…
