God is like Jesus.
God has always been like Jesus.
There has never been a time when God was not like Jesus.
We haven’t always known this.
But now we do.
Brian Zahnd

You must believe that to see Jesus is to see God. This can be a hard thing to grasp. This is a revolution of thought.

How many times have I read where Jesus says “If you’ve seen me, you’ve seen the Father“?

There it is.

Plain as day.

So, is Jesus saying that Him and God are twins? That they look the exact same? That they act the same? Or is he saying that He and God are the same?

Twice in the book of John, Jesus talks about only doing and saying what He saw the Father doing and saying. I’ve always heard this made into a pre-requisite for us.

“Only do what God does.”

“Only say what God says.”

The problem with this we are not Jesus. There’s no way for us to only do and say what God does and says. As much I have tried, I’ve failed.

Only Jesus. Only the perfect Son can do this. Only the perfect Son can do this, perfectly.

“We are saved by God from God through God to God for God. The idea of our salvation is the Father’s; the work of our salvation is the Son’s; the dispensing of our salvation is the Spirit’s. So that in all things God will get the glory.”

– Jared Wilson, Gospel Deeps: Reveling in the Excellencies of Jesus

It’s single-handedly God.

While I may not completely agree with the exact wording and thought process as Mr. Wilson, I do 100% agree that salvation is ALL God.

Language of a Son

Never again will I sing the songs of slavery. I’m neither hungry, thirsty, void of the presence of God, standing under a closed heaven, or in need of a heart transplant. My most pressing need is not for God to “let it rain”, grant me a “holy visitation”, or send “fire”. In Christ, I am complete, and in need of a greater revelation of just how deep this completion goes. I do not need to have desire or hunger stirred up within in me, but contentment and peace.

I will not subject myself to depression in the name of worship. Ever.

I will admire and appreciate the heart of those who sing such tunes from a place of sincerity, but will guard my vocabulary, making sure that my language always reflects my lineage. Desperation, after all, is the language of the orphanage, while satisfaction is the language of a son.
