The Work of The Father

[Jesus Said:]“My Father is working until now, and I Myself am working.” (John 5:17, NASB95)

I remember as a young boy 1 hearing my dad get up at 4:30 every morning in order to get ready for work. Some Saturdays I even got to get up with him on rare occasions and go to the office with him. Dad worked at AT&T in Chicago doing something with engineering working in a cubicle lovers paradise. On his office floor were rows upon rows of cubicles each containing a desk and a computer and who knows what else. He would set me up at a desk to play around while he did whatever work he was going to do. To this day I’m not certain what my dad actually did at work, but I know that it was fruitful. Every day he came home tired and every day we had food to eat on the table. The evidence of my father’s work was, for me, more clear than what he actually did for work.

Our heavenly father is a God who works.
