Philip said, “Lord, show us the Father and that will be enough for us.” Jesus answered: “Don’t you know me, Philip, even after I have been among you such a long time? Anyone who has seen me has seen the Father. How can you say, ‘Show us the Father’? Don’t you believe that I am in the Father, and that the Father is in me? The words I say to you are not just my own. Rather, it is the Father, living in me, who is doing his work. Believe me when I say that I am in the Father and the Father is in me; or at least believe on the evidence of the miracles themselves.” (John 14:8–11, NIV 1984).
My Musings – That day when we come to realize that we have “turned into” our father. We’ve said something He would have said or did something He would have done. And it felt right. I know this is not true for everyone, but it rings true to me. That’s the kind of person my dad was.
I know this is not true for every child of God as well. Not saying the things He said or teaching the things that He taught. But how can we, if we are not spending time with Him.
My Advice – Honestly, how well do we know the Father? Perhaps we need more quality time with Him. That would make His day.
