Like Father, Like Son

Ah, like father like son!

How true this statement is. There are many good applications for this, Lord.

To be like you is to be blessed. To be like you is to be whole. To be like you is to be a blessing for all your children. To be like you is to be part of the eternal symphonic progression of this life.

Will life always progress with such sympathetic harmonies? Will we always resound and vibrate with a noise of progress, prosperity and peace?

What happens, though, Lord when we come into contact with those who are not sons or daughters? What happens when we encounter those who think that they are serving you but really aren’t? What happens when those whose reverberation is like a hammer clanking an anvil, thudding as it wields the chains that bind them?

They will put you out of the synagogue; in fact, a time is coming when anyone who kills you will think he is offering a service to God. – John 16:2

Why will they do such things, Father?

The will do such things because they have not known the Father or me.
I have told you this so that when the time comes you will remember
that I warned you. – John 16:3-4a

What is the authority you speak of, Father? How can I act in authority? What does it mean to be like you here on earth?

Speak, Father!
