Series 2 - Lesson 1 - Annotation 16
How shall we do the works that Jesus did?
16. Jesus knew that He must be the embodiment of the one Mind, one substance, one Source, one Presence, one Power. "Wist ye not that I must be about my Father's business?" (Luke 2:49). Jesus recognized and claimed God as the creative power that did the work. Note His words:
"I can of myself do nothing" (John 5:30).
"The Father [the ideal, the perfect idea] abiding in me doeth his works (John 14:10).
"All power is given unto me [the ideal] in heaven and in earth" (Matt. 28:18 A.V.).
To do the works that Jesus did, we need to
(6) hold to these ideals or ideas through all difficulties until they so completely dominate our human consciousness that we do indeed "have this mind . . . which was also in Christ Jesus" (Phil. 2:5).
