Speaking for the Father

John 7:15-18; 8:26-28, 38a, 40; 12:49-50; 14:10, 24

The Jews then were astonished, saying, “How has this man become learned, having never been educated?” So Jesus answered them and said, “My teaching is not Mine, but His who sent Me. If anyone is willing to do His will, he will know of the teaching, whether it is of God or whether I speak from Myself. He who speaks from himself seeks his own glory; but He who is seeking the glory of the One who sent Him, He is true, and there is no unrighteousness in Him.” (John 7:15-18, NASB)

Father, when Jesus spoke,
He spoke only
Your words for
Your glory.
In everything He said, He was
completely dependent on You,
completely obedient to You,
completely humble before You.

Thus in every situation, under all types of pressure,
He spoke with
boldness, and
for He only spoke the words of Almighty God.

Father, to the people who hear me,
speak Your words.
Speak Your wisdom.
Speak Your love.
