John 5:19…30

“Truly, truly, I say to you, the Son can do nothing of Himself, unless it is something He sees the Father doing; for whatever the Father does, these things the Son also does in like manner… because I do not seek My own will, but the will of Him who sent Me.

  • Like ballroom dancing – we respond to the movements of the lead

means we have learned to trust Him …

 Eze 20:37  I will make you pass under the rod, and I will bring you into the bond of the covenant

  • He comes to us to establish covenant with us…
  • Only when we permit the shepherd to inspect us are we truly in covenant with him. PETER

Gal 4:9 But now that you have come to know God, or rather to be known by God

Psalm 139    Passion translation

  • Being known by God can be intimidating

23 Search me, O God, and know my heart; Try me and know my anxious thoughts; And see if there be any hurtful way in me, And lead me in the everlasting way.
