127 Submitting to the Will of Heavenly Father Is the Substance of Christ
1. God Himself has no elements of disobedience; He is the expression of all love, as well as beauty and goodness. Even in the flesh, God does not do any that disobeys God the Father. Even at the expense of sacrificing His life, He would be whole-heartedly willing and make no other choice.
2. God has no elements of self-rightness and self-importance, or those of conceit and arrogance; He has no elements of crookedness. No matter how arduous the work or weak the flesh, God in the flesh, will never do anything that interrupts the work of Himself, much less forsake the will of God the Father.
3. God in the flesh would rather suffer pains of the flesh than go against the will of God the Father; Though He has the identity of God Himself, He still seeks the will of God the Father, and fulfills what is entrusted to Him by God the Father. Submitting to the will of God the Father is the substance of Christ.
