I Am in the Father

John 14:10. Do you not believe that I am in the Father, and the Father is in me? The words that I say to you, I do not speak on my own initiative, but the Father residing in me performs his miraculous deeds.

Jesus came for several reasons. He came to die for our sins to reunite us with God. He also came to show us God’s love and to teach us to hear God. Everything He said and did was a direct reflection of God, the Father. He told us the Father lives in Him and works through Him. When He prayed for us in John 17:21-22 “I am not praying only on their behalf, but also on behalf of those who believe in me through their testimony, that they will all be one, just as you, Father, are in me and I am in you. I pray that they will be in us, so that the world will believe that you sent me.”
As the Father is in and working through the Son and the Son is in the Father, so is it to be with us. Our question is, are we letting Him work through us and in us?
