My father is always working

In John 5, Jesus healed a man who was disabled for thirty-eight years. Since Jesus had done this healing on Sabbath, the pharisees came to persecute him. Jesus said to them, “My father is always at work to this very day and I too am working.”

Paul says in 1Cor.3:9, “For we are God’s fellow workers.” Fellow workers are those people who have a desire to work with God, under the guidance of HIS divine word that came to us through Jesus Christ, our Lord. A worker who is well aware of the goals of company he works for and is dilligent enough to align his own career goals with those of the company, will be succesful in his career. Likewise, Unless we know the purpose behind God’s work and the way HE works, our works will not be fruitful.

Bible says in Genesis 1:3, ” God said, Let there be light and there was light.” God our father and creator brings things to life by speaking his word. Not only so, He desires to give the same auhority to his people, the same way He gave to his son Jesus. The word of God is active and alive (Heb 4:12). Isaiah says that God’s word never returns empty, but accomlishes what HE desires. The word of God that came to us through Jesus Christ is the absolute truth. It is written in John 8:32, the truth will set you free. In other words, God’s word not only creates and bring life but also brings complete freedom.

Father is into the business of setting people free: emotionally, physically and mentally.  Jesus was setting people free when He was here on earth. What are we doing? Let’s evaluate the consequences of our words today. Are we acting as co-partners with God and proclaiming his word that brings freedom?
