THROUGH THE BIBLE IN THREE YEARS
The old Nazarene evangelist Bud Robinson was praying once in a revival meeting.
He prayed, "O Lord, give me a backbone as big as a saw long and ribs like the sleepers under the church floor.
Put iron shoes on my feet and galvanized breeches on my body. Give me a rhinocerous hide for skin and
hang up a wagon load of determination in the gable end of my soul.
Help me to sign a contract to fight the devil as long as I've got a tooth - and then gum him 'till I die!"
But Jesus answered them, My Father worketh hitherto, and I work.
God the Father is WORKING!
It is not by chance the universe holds together - God's power is WORKING!
It is not by chance you have food, clothes, jobs - God's love is WORKING!
It is not by chance people are being won to Christ today - God's grace is WORKING!
God the Son is WORKING!
He is still holding out nail-scarred hands in love - Jesus is WORKING!
He is still holding your life together in faith - Jesus is WORKING!
He is still interceding in prayer constantly for His people - Jesus is WORKING!
God the Holy Spirit is WORKING!
He is still convicting sinners of lostness - His Holy Spirit is WORKING!
He is still providing inspiration for the saved - His Holy Spirit is WORKING!
He is still empowering witness from the saved - His Holy Spirit is WORKING!
Our God is a WORKING God. He doesn't work for "busyness."
He works to conduct the business of saving lost souls.
God works because it is His nature, His character.
If God is IN you by surrender to Christ, then His nature is IN you also.
For it is God which worketh in you both to will and to do of his good pleasure.
What is your job in His Kingdom?
Are you doing it?
