Man needs extra ability to bear the cross and tribulation that he will see in the practice of divine love. Our Lord Jesus Christ confirmed it. He said that everything He did was by the divine power given Him by God His Father. On His own He can do nothing. So man needs God's power to be able to practise divine love. Without the love and power of God we can do nothing: "Believest thou not I am in the Father, and the Father in me? The words that I speak unto you, I speak not of myself, but the Father that dwelleth in me, he doeth the works". (John 14: 10)
This divine power is the attribute of God the Father. It comes from Him. Unless man receives power from God the Father, man cannot practise divine love, cannot be the temple of divine love and christ of God,cannot be transformed into righteousness, and cannot inherit the kingdom of God. God the Father is God of power and will. God the Son is God of love. Without the Father, man cannot have the Son in himself and cannot be a christ of God (anointed of God). We need this spiritual power and strength from the Father.
