Ceasing from Self

I enter God’s rest and cease from my own human labours, just as God rested from those labours peculiarly His own. Heb 4.10 Jn 5.17

Jesus Christ’s Example:

The Son is able to do nothing from Himself – of his own accord; but he is able to do only what He sees the Father doing. For whatever the Father does is what the Son does in the same way. As I live like Jesus, I do nothing from myself but only what I see the Lord doing. Jn 5.19

I have never spoken on My own authority or of My own accord or self-appointed, but the Father who has sent Me has Himself given Me orders what to say and what to tell. Jn 12.49

And I know that His commandment is eternal life. So whatever I speak, I am saying what My Father has told Me to say and in accordance with His instructions. Jn 12.50

  1. I really appreciate this site…may the Lord bless and give wisdom, & understanding to all that is done and said here.
    Thought to add a couple scriptures to your list…
    “I have been crucified with Christ, now it is not I who live, but Christ who lives in me and the life I now live, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me, and gave Himself for me. Gal 2:20
    Concept: Jesus who, athough He existed in the form of God…emptied Himself, took on the form of a bond servant, and being made in the likeness of man, humbled Himself, by becoming obedient to the point of death, even to death on the cross. Phil 2:5-8 He is our example.
    Blessings to all, Pam
