Jesus obeyed completely the will of His Father. He taught only what His Father wanted Him to teach. The record of John’s Gospel is clear and beautiful on the perfect, sinless example of the Son.
This Son was not equal with His Father for only a mortal time in the work of His salvific subordination. But make no mistake about this on Father’s Day: The Son is equal to the Father.
And of course, we are never an equal to the Son. I am made a friend to Jesus Christ. This is amazing grace. But I will never be an equal to the Son. He always gives the commands. John’s Gospel also makes this very clear.
And with tomorrow soon to be . . .
Happy Father’s Day to all.
