John 5:19 NLT ... "I tell you the Truth. The Son of Man can do nothing by Himself. He does only what He sees the Father doing. Whatever the Father does, the Son also does.
Jesus is taught by the Father, and now He's doing those things.
Verse 20 NLT ... The Father loves the Son and shows Him everything He is doing. In fact, the Father will show Him how to do even greater works than healing this man. Then you will truly be astonished.
Jesus told us that the works He did, we shall do, and greater works we shall do, because it is written in John 14:12, that anyone who believes in Him will do the same works that He did and even greater works because He's going to be with the Father.
John 5:21-23 NLT ... For just as the Father gives Life to those He raises from the dead, so the Son gives Life to anyone He wants. In addition, the Father judges no one. Instead He has given the Son absolute authority to judge, so that everyone will honor the Son, just as they honor the Father. Anyone who does not honor the Son is certainly not honoring the Father Who sent Him.
You cannot honor God the Father without honoring God the Son, Jesus.
Verse 24a ... I tell you the Truth, those who listen to My message and believe in God Who sent Me have eternal Life.
Did you know that you can hear and not hear? Jesus said: "Those who have ears to hear, hear". What is He talking about? He's saying that we have to listen and UNDERSTAND what is being said.
Verse 24b ... They will never be condemned for their sins, but they have already passed from death into Life.
We are supposed to be following after Jesus. He is our Example. We are supposed to be little Jesus's walking around on this Earth.
