John 8:28,29 NLT ... Jesus said, "When you have lifted up the Son of Man on the cross, then you will understand (believe), know) that I AM He. I do nothing on My own, but say only as My Father taught Me. The One Who sent Me is with Me --- He has not deserted Me. For I always do what pleases Him."
Jesus was always totally obedient. He had to be taught by the Father how He was supposed to act on this Earth.
You may say, "Yes, but He was God." No ... He left all that in Heaven when He came here. He came here to be just like us.
He said ..."He that sent Me is with Me." If you're born again, God is with you ... not only is He with you, He is in you. Not only that ... He wants to guide and direct you in everything you do. This is you yielding to your spirit man, not doing what your soulish man wants you to do.
Jesus said, "He has not left Me alone ... for I always do those things that please Him." Jesus was always obedient.
He said, "I do nothing of Myself ... the Father teaches Me what to do."
Our Heavenly Father is always teaching us things. We need to grab ahold of these things and know how to use them in our everyday living.
