While here on earth Jesus only did what the Holy Spirit told Him to do. That very same Spirit lives within us and we too are to walk in His shoes. He had to learn obedience and didn’t know when He’d return.
Hebrews 5:8-10 (KJV) Though he were a Son, yet learned he obedience by the things which he suffered; And being made perfect, he became the author of eternal salvation unto all them that obey him; Called of God an high priest after the order of Melchisedec.
Mark 13:32 (KJV) But of that day and that hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels which are in heaven, neither the Son, but the Father.
So, just as Jesus is, so are we, today, now, here on earth:
1 John 4:17 (KJV) Herein is our love made perfect, that we may have boldness in the day of judgment: because as he is, so are we in this world.
John 7:38-39 (KJV) He that believeth on me, as the scripture hath said, out of his belly shall flow rivers of living water. (But this spake he of the Spirit, which they that believe on him should receive: for the Holy Ghost was not yet given; because that Jesus was not yet glorified.)
Ever wonder why the Spirit couldn’t be given? Because Jesus hadn’t yet died for our sins. He presented Himself as our Holy Sacrifice when He ascended to the Father. Once that happened the Holy Spirit was given to us – He cannot exist in an unholy temple, of which we are now righteous by His blood and the temple of the Holy Spirit. Therefore we have the ability to live like Jesus did, be guided by the Holy Spirit like Jesus did, and through His power we glorify God with our lives, which is why “as He is, so are we in this world”, and what is that? Righteous!
