-Working With HIM

Working With 



“Jesus … said to Philip, ‘Where shall we buy bread, that these may eat?’” John 6:5 NKJV
It was nothing for Jesus to feed five thousand, to walk on water, and do many other physical miracles. However, it was work to get people to trust Him, for we are stiff-necked and slow of heart to believe (Acts 7:51; Lk. 24:25). He framed this truth around things we consider to be work. To feed five thousand would take more than half a year’s wages, but He could take five small loaves and multiply them to feed the multitude.
“When they had rowed about … four miles, they saw Jesus walking on the sea.” John 6:19
The disciples had been rowing hard against the wind and were but a little over a mile away from where they started, with about five more miles to go, when Jesus came walking by on the water. They received Him into their boat and immediately they were at their destination. But He replied to the crowd that followed, “You have seen Me and yet do not believe” (Jn. 6:36).
“Jesus … said … ‘This is the work of God, that you believe on Him whom He sent.’” John 6:29
It is obvious from the world we live in that relatively few people really believe the gospel of Christ, but God is always working to draw more of them to Himself, and we can be workers together with Him.

By Tom Steere
Work, for the Lord is coming! Children of light are we;
From Jesus’ bright appearing powers of darkness flee.
As from the mist arising, Souls like the dew are born;
O’er all the East are spreading tints of rosy morn.
