John 3:8 The wind blows wherever it pleases. You hear its sound, but you cannot tell where it comes from or where it is going. So it is with everyone born of the Spirit.”[d]Jesus is like that wind, He is subject to the authority of no man. He's not here on Earth (one day he will be again) but we can still hear his voice and obey. I love the next part of the verse about everyone being born of the Spirit.
If we are born of the same Spirit that is a piece of God, then what do you think that makes us if we are born of the Spirit? It makes us the same as Jesus. He is a big brother to us. That entitles us to the same privliges. Jesus was merely the first to take every last one of them.
