Andrew Fuller Friday: Jesus and the Father are One (Part 2)

“Further, it ought to be considered that, in worshipping the Son of God, we worship him not on account of that wherein he differs from the Father, but on account of those perfections which we believe him to possess in common with him. This, with the consideration that we worship him not to the exclusion of the Father, any more than the Father to the exclusion of him, but as one with him, removes all apprehensions from our minds that, in ascribing glory to the one, we detract from that of the other. Nor can we think but that these ideas are confirmed, and the weight of the objection removed, by those declarations of Scripture where the Father and the Son are represented as being in such union that “he who hath seen the one hath seen the other;” and “he who honoureth the one honoureth the other;” yea, that “he who honoureth not the Son, honoureth not the Father who sent him.”
