Do we speak from ourselves?
“… I do nothing from Myself; but as My Father has taught Me, I speak these things.” John 8:28b
“(49) For I have not spoken of Myself; but the Father Who sent Me gave Me a commandment, what I should say, and what I should speak. (50) And I know that His commandment is life everlasting: whatsoever I speak therefore, even as the Father said unto Me, so I speak.” John 12:49-50
“Do you not believe that I am in the Father, and the Father in Me? The words that I speak unto you, I do not speak from Myself: but the Father Who dwells in Me does the works.” John 14:10
Jesus is God in the flesh, showing us what He is like.
In the new creation of God and us, we do not speak from ourselves either.
“If any person is in Christ, that person is a new creation. The old things have passed away, new things have come.” 2 Corinthians 5:17
“It is no longer [just] I who live, but Christ lives in me.” (Galatians 2:20b)
“Those who have joined themselves to the Lord are one spirit.” 1 Corinthians 6:17
Measure yourself by what you say and do.
He is leading you to follow Him in speech and your walk together.
Lord, help me know what you are saying and doing in me.
“You seek for proof of Christ speaking in me.” 2 Corinthians 13:3
