The Son of God has the same power to give life as God the Father. As Jesus declared,

“For as the Father raises the dead and gives life to them, even so the Son gives life to whom He will” (John 5.21).

The Son has the same power as the Father and the same discretionary will as the Father. Therefore, Jesus is the Son of God. And if we wish to have life, we have to go to the Father and to the Son. The Son should mean as much to us as the Father means to us, and the Father should mean as much to us as the Son means to us.

Questions:

  • Do you live life with the Father and the Son in mind?
  • Do you believe you have life now, and that you shall be resurrected because the Son has the power to do it?
