. . . since the Logos is full of the Father’s goodness and shines forth from him, he does all things in a way similar to the one who begot him. For if he is without difference in substance, he will also be without difference in power, and for those whose power is identical, the energy also is wholly identical. For “Christ is the power of God and the wisdom of God” (1 Cor 1.24). And “all things were made through him” (Jn 1.3), and all things were created through him and for him” (Col 1.16). He does not perform the instrumental service of some slave, but perfectly fulfills the creative will of the Father.
