Then answered Jesus and said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, The Son can do nothing of himself, but what he seeth the Father do: for what things soever he doeth, these also doeth the Son likewise. For the Father loveth the Son, and sheweth him all things that himself doeth: and he will shew him greater works than these, that ye may marvel.
How do children learn? Many learn by watching their parents (or those around them) and mimicking their actions.
My son is a prime example of this. Before he was even two years old, he knew how to turn on the tractor and how to move the 3-point hitch. Were these things my husband taught him? NO! He watched my husband do them and then did them himself.
Christ was the same way, "The Son can do nothing of himself, but what he seeth the Father do." If that is what Christ did, then we, as children of God, should do the same. "Watch" what the Father is doing and do it ourselves. When we see God working, we should ask to join Him in His work!
