Thought for Today: “God’s Work or Our Work”
“Jesus therefore, being wearied from His journey, sat thus by the well. It was about the sixth hour.” (John 4:5)
Jesus was weary. He was human, but to sit out in the heat of the day, and by a well that he couldn’t get any water from, isn’t what a weary person would do. He would have gone into town with the rest of the disciples where he could secure shade, water, and some food to revive Himself.
But remember what He said to His disciples when they came back with food. He said, “I have food to eat of which you do not know” (and) “My food is to do the will of Him who sent Me, and to finish His work.” (John 4:32, 34)
Jesus may have been weary physically speaking, but spiritually He was filled. Jesus may have been weary in His works, but He was never weary of them. And this should be a good lesson for us, because if we’re weary of doing God’s work, then it’s a good possibility that we’re not doing God’s work but our own.
