John 5:19 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.
Basically he was saying, “It’s not me doing it. I don’t do anything but what I see my Father doing. I know my Father can’t fail, so I’m acting just like Him.” This is exactly why Jesus was so bold.
You know what? I see a new definition of faith here. Faith is acting just like God. Faith places you in God’s category. Isn’t that wonderful? That is why God gave us faith, so we could be just like Him. Jesus’ faith was strong because He only did what the Father told Him to do. The Blood of Jesus gives you the right to operate with the same faith Jesus operated in!
