What The Father Teaches

Then said Jesus unto them, When ye have lifted up the Son of man, then shall ye know that I am he, and that I do nothing of myself; but as my Father hath taught me, I speak these things.  (John 8:28)

Why did Jesus live as He lived?  He wanted to show us how we should live.  But more importantly, He was taught of His Father and actively and passionately doing the will of His Father.  The Father is not through teaching yet.  He continues to teach us through His Word.  He taught His Son and His Son lived and spoke the things which He was taught.  We are now taught through the Word of God.  Therefore, we cannot do as we please.  We cannot say what we please.  We must do and say as we have been taught of the Father.  What does the Father teach?  He teaches us to love.  He teaches kindness.  He teaches forgiveness.  He teaches longsuffering.  He teaches gentleness.  He teaches meekness.  He teaches faith.  He teaches hope.  He teaches that there is but one way to salvation and that is through His Son.  The Son has been lifted up for the world to see.  All should now know that He is who He say He is and that He truly is the only begotten Son of God.  That is what the Father teaches.  Are we learning yet?
