When you have lifted up the Son of man,
then you will know that I am He
and that I do nothing of my own accord.
What I say
is what the Father has taught me;
he who sent me is with me,
and has not left me to myself,
for I always do what pleases him.

John 8: 28-29

“The whole of Jesus’ ministry pointed away from himself to the Father who had sent him. . . . In order to be ministry in the Name of Jesus, our ministry must also point beyond our words to the unspeakable ministry of God. . . . If it is true that the word of Scripture should lead us into the silence of God, then we must be careful to use that word not simply as an interesting or motivating word, but as a word that creates the boundaries within which we can listen to the loving, caring, gentle presence of God.”
