The authority of Jesus flows from His identity. The mission of Jesus is a function of who He is as the Son of God.

So, because the Son and the Father are one, we know that Jesus is God. Even though Jesus has a unique identity, He is still the One who fulfills the Father’s plan.

Dear Jesus, may I accept the unique plan that God has for me. In beginning this day, may I be united with You by listening first and acting on the Father’s plan.
