Work


They go to Church.  They read their Bible.  They give to the poor.  They have prayed some kind of prayer.  They might even have spoken openly about the Holy Son of God.  Have they done the will of God?

If they read these words, the answer must remain, “no”.  For the will of the Living God is a Living Will.  And if they can still read these words, then they are still in the place of “Working”.  The work of God has no place of completion.  It is a continual doing.

Is this splitting hairs?  Absolutely not.  When Jesus spoke, “It is finished”, He did not consider Himself to have completed the Living Will of His Holy Father.  He perceived that the most severe possible test of his continuance was completed.  But men hold their deeds as if they are completions in themselves.

“My Father is always at his work to this very day, and I too am working.” (John 5:17)  There is a place of rest.  But even in that place there is a sustaining.

What’s the point of this post?  Don’t consider that your work for Him will ever find an “end”.  Take a vacation from the “work of men”.  But don’t consider that you can do the same from the “Work of God”.
