19 So Jesus answered and said to them, “Truly, truly I say to you, the Son can do nothing from himself except what he sees the Father doing. For whatever that one does, these things also the Son does likewise. John 5:19 (LEB)
5 “I am the vine; you are the branches. The one who remains in me and I in him—this one bears much fruit, for apart from me you are not able to do anything. John 15:5 (LEB)
Notice anything similar in these two verses just quoted? That's right. Apart from...just like He, you can do NOTHING! Be like Jesus and be nothing so Father can be everything.
If that gets your goat let it go.
