Honoring the Son

An unbiased study of the sayings of Christ Jesus in the New Testament shows clearly that he whom we call the Messiah understood himself to be, not God, but the Son of God. Jesus declared that God was his Father and, likewise, the Father of all men; that is, the Father or creator of the spiritual selfhood of each one of us. So understandingly did the Master identify himself with God, the Father, that he could say (John 5:19), "The Son can do nothing of himself, but what he seeth the Father do: for what things so-ever he doeth, these also doeth the Son likewise."

How can it be said that Christ Jesus did the things of his Father? Because he reflected the qualities of God. This was outstandingly characteristic of him. Compassion, purity, wisdom, love, were his constant companions; and the source of these was God, perfect Mind. Spiritual understanding and spiritual power he also abundantly manifested, healing all manner of sickness and sin by their use; and these, too, spiritual understanding and spiritual power, were of God, perfect Mind. Moreover, as the Son, consciously at one with the Father, he was ever obedient to the law of God—spiritual law, obedient to the extent of denying all that was unlike good—all evil.
