“Following Jesus,” Friend, Aug. 2013, 12
Jesus Christ said, “I do nothing of myself” (John 8:28).
Jesus always did what Heavenly Father wanted. He healed the sick, taught people, and called disciples because God commanded Him to do so. When Jesus died for us as part of the Atonement, He was following Heavenly Father’s plan. Jesus said, “I seek not mine own will, but the will of the Father” (John 5:30).
