The Secret of Relationship
“And he that sent me is with me:
the Father hath not left me alone;
for I do always those things that please him.”
They who are sent of God are never alone. Though it be a lonely walk the upright in heart are never alone. The Secret Place of communion with God is ever found in the doing of those things which please the Father. The Son knows the heart and mind of the Father. It is in our yielding to Him and taking on His Yoke that we discover through relationship with the Son the wonder of pleasing the Father. This is a school which will take the disciple deeper than any teaching can convey. It will unfold the mysteries of God far beyond any inspired sermon and it will bring us into the joy of the Lord; His joy becomes ours! His joy is known by those who bring Him joy.
Only the Son knows the Father and it is in our knowing of Him we will know the Father.
“All things are delivered to me of my Father:
and no man knoweth who the Son is, but the Father;
and who the Father is, but the Son,
and he to whom the Son will reveal him”
Obedience is the means to union with Christ.
“Ye are my friends,
if ye do whatsoever I command you”
Union with Christ is the only path to knowing the Father.
“…he that hath seen me hath seen the Father”
Discipleship with Christ is the only way of pleasing the Father.
“Herein is my Father glorified,
that ye bear much fruit;
so shall ye be my disciples”
