This was the nature birthed in the Son from the Father. This is what the Son wants for all His brethren who are born of His Father.
This is also what He wanted for His Father, to be loved by the sons/daughters who had His "Christ in you" nature living in them, 2nd Peter 1:4,
4 Whereby are given unto us exceeding great and precious promises: that by these ye might be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust.

This is the Son declaring, "take my nature (birthed in you) and use it as though it was your own nature, because it is your very own personal, individual, nature through the birthing."
This is the principal Paul calls "reckoning." Romans 6:11,
11 Likewise reckon ye also yourselves to be dead indeed unto sin, but alive unto God through Jesus Christ our Lord.

We have no written record where the Father ever told Jesus how to be a good Son.
It was not necessary because the Father totally, completely, and fully trusted the Son's nature, which came from the Father.
The works that Jesus did were the result of Him living life from His inborn "Father in you" nature.
Through the study of the word all we can see is; the Father sent His Son into the world, but never told Him what to do.
Example: we don't need to be told to feed the hungry, clothe the naked, and reach the lost.
It is a normal occurrence for a born again believer.
The difference is we still think it is us, until we come to see our Christ life nature, we ride the roller coaster of this life, Gal. 2:20,
20 I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me.

It cannot be reiterated enough, "we have no life of our own" the only life you have is Christ.
When He was crucified on the cross, you died with Him.
All in Adam, dead as Christ, when He laid His dead head on His dead shoulder, it was finished.
Anything you live apart from this life of Christ, is a false life that you have to act out, just as an actor on the big screen. You are living from a deadman, that was crucified with Christ.
It is written as such; Christ is the life in the creature, everything you do in life "is Christ" not like him, not an imitation of the real.
Paul would say "it is Christ."
I'll use marriage for example, it is Christ as you in that marriage, Christ as the husband, and Christ as the wife.
When they see this it will help them work out differences.
We are not talking about perfection, but the difference is magnanimous.
The only problem of real significance, is a believer not knowing who they are.
There in lies every problem of life.
It will mean something to you as you realize what ever you are doing it is Christ.
It is Christ who comes out of you as you, you're very own unique creation. That's why when religion tries to stereotype the believer it will absolutely never work.
You are your own unique person, there is not another like you.
Christ will live His life in and through you.
But the only way He can do that is by your creation. Can you see it, you are not Jesus, you are not a little god, but you were created for Christ to come through you as life.
His life, and our only life, Gal. 2:20.
