The Authority of the Son of God


John 5:17-30


After God had created the world, He

was still active.  Christ worked with His Father.

The Holy Spirit worked with Them also.

They kept cooperating and working.


The Father and the Son were equal and

distinct.  The Holy Spirit was also.

Jesus Christ did not exceed His Father.

The Father sent His Son to do His will.


When the Bears won the nineteen eighty-

five championship, there was great coop-

eration among management, coaches,

and players.  Everyone worked together.


Let us work for competition on the

field and cooperation off the field.

Patrick McCaskey
