GIG 216 - How Jesus the Man Did the Things He Did
During His time as a man upon the earth, Jesus said and did a lot of things. How did He do them? Did He speak great words and perform great works because He was God? He Himself said, "I can do nothing of Myself." So if He did nothing of Himself, how did He do the things He did? The scriptures reveal that He didn't do the things because He was God, but because God was with Him. Jesus had an abiding relationship with the Father, and the Father did His works through Jesus. In the same way, we can do nothing of ourselves, but Christ who abides in us does His works in and through us!
