3 Important Factors About Gods Mission
1. GOD REALLY DOES HAVE A MISSION!
Did you notice that small but important part in that verse? That part where it said that "My Father is always at "His" work...." Jesus refers to it as "His" work! God our Father has a work that He is actively and intentionally pursuing!
God is not sitting up in Heaven twiddling His thumbs trying to figure out what he should do each day. God has a work and that work was determined by God a long time ago. God isn't waiting for us to tell him what he needs to do for us - God is busy about doing what he knows is best. And we can rest assured that if it is God's work - God's mission - it is the most important work and mission to do.
2. GOD IS BUSY ABOUT HIS MISSION!
The next thing we can get from this verse is that God is actively accomplishing His mission. Every day and in every way God is fulfilling his purpose, plan and mission. He isn't being lazy about accomplishing His work; God isn't procrastinating or putting off what needs to be done today for tomorrow and God is most certainly not waiting to get permission from anybody and including us to do his mission. God is busy about his work!
As Jesus was speaking about the mission of His Father he then included himself in there by saying, "And I too am working." Jesus is all about being apart of the mission of God. Everything Jesus did while he was here on earth was part of the plan of fulfilling God's mission. Jesus didn't tell the Father was he was willing to do. No. Jesus received His instructions from the Father and then was obedient to the Father.
Do you recognized that God is still actively pursuing the fulfillment of His mission? Do you believe that God is not lazy about it or putting it off? Do you understand that like Jesus we too are to be part of God's mission and to be faithfully obedient to whatever part he want us to do in the fulfillment of His mission? Do you understand that you don't tell God what you will do but you are to obediently do what God has assigned you to do.
