Whenever Jesus spoke of the Father, Jesus spoke of Him in loving and dependent ways. Jesus saw that with the Father, He the Son, was everything and had everything. Whatever Jesus gave to the apostles and then to us, He received from the Father,

Then Jesus answered and said to them, “Most assuredly, I say to you, the Son can do nothing of Himself, but what He sees the Father do; for whatever He does, the Son also does in like manner. For the Father loves the Son, and shows Him all things that He Himself does; and He will show Him greater works than these, that you may marvel” (John 5.19–20). 

Yes, Jesus, we do marvel at those greater works, and believe that you are the Son of God!
