The servant-son

 

Jesus was a lowly man who enjoyed a unique relationship with the God of Israel. He called this God “Father,” and he understood himself as the Father’s servant-son.  His entire life was an expression of faithful service to his Father ending in his obedience unto death on the cross.

As the Father’s servant-son, the Spirit came to Jesus, from the Father, and remained on him leading and empowering him to live and die in willing obedience to his Father.

Jesus served his Father in the presence and power of the Spirit and he now continues to serve his Father in and through us in the presence and power of the same Spirit.
