Jesus realized that the road He was to travel would be an insurmountable undertaking without God’s involvement in His life. Jesus acknowledged that He came not to do His own will, but the will of God, and to do that He must have every aspect of His life in line with God’s directive. (John 6:38) God prepared Jesus, not only through the revealed knowledge of the Torah, but through the prophets and “visual aids.” God allowed Jesus to witness what He was doing. Jesus shocked those around Him when He stated that He could do nothing of Himself, unless it is something He sees the Father doing, and that God was in fact showing Him all that He was doing. (John 5:19, 20) Jesus continued to acknowledge that “My Father has been working until now, and I have been working.” (John 5: 17)
Jesus revealed that the miracles God would be showing Him would even supercede what had already been seen. (John 5:20) Besides the blind seeing and the deaf hearing, nature’s energy would be tamed, causing even His Apostles to be astonished. (Luke 8:25) As His Father shared what the magnitude of miracles would be, Jesus told His followers they would do the same kind of miracles that He did, and even “greater works” because He was going to be with His Father. (John 14:12) The ministry of the Kingdom would be carried out by those who illustrated what God was doing.
Today, we must see God working, and when we do, we must be ready to be the visible evidence of that action. I have seen God working in many individuals, but due to their spiritual ignorance, they have failed to recognize God’s involvement. I have seen people set free from so many addictions. I have witnessed healings, both physical and mental. I have seen people delivered from financial crises. I have observed broken relationships restored. The amazing thing was that many of these situations involved non-Christians! God is working in the lives of people everyday. The Bible says that God desires that all be saved, and that none should perish. (I Timothy 2:4, II Peter 3:9) Believers must see God reaching out to those who do not know Him and be willing to work the works that He has commissioned us to do. Instead of dismissing the unsaved and judging their sinful behavior, let us see God reaching out to them through our hands and voices. As Jesus saw God working, He reached out and touched the untouchables. Believers need to be more observant of what God is doing. Wherever we look, we should see God working. He is working everyday in people’s lives, even the unsaved, and we need to reach out with a conscious effort to do the work He has called us to do. The world thinks that certain things happen in their life as a result of coincidence, when, in fact, it is a “God-incidence.” It is time to put on our “Son glasses” and see God working. It is time to reach out as we have seen Jesus do through the Gospels and start touching the hurting. May God grant us understanding as to the intent of His Word!
