Daily Bread – April 15, 2022 (The Sixth Day – Genesis 1:24-31) John 5:17 – But Jesus answered them, “My Father is always at work, and so I work.” Jesus Continues His Work Through Us Jesus did many signs, wonders, and miracles – but He never took the credit. It was the Father in Christ Jesus Who was doing the works (John 10:38, 14:10-11). He was on an assignment from the Father, and everything He was doing was in obedience to those things which He had been commissioned to do. Jesus made it known to the Jews that the Father was always working; and therefore, in obedience to the Father, He was working, too. It did not matter what day it was, the Father was set on the redemption of mankind. The Father’s will is that all men be delivered from sin, sickness, and disease. Just as the Father showed Jesus the miracles He was supposed to do, Jesus has shown us the miracles we are supposed to do (John 5:20-21; Luke 24:49; Acts 1:8; Matthew 4:19, 10:8; Mark 16:17-18). The miracles were proof that Jesus was sent from the Father, and the miracles are proof we have also been commissioned and sent by the Lord Jesus (John 5:36; Hebrews 2:4; Acts 1:8, 6:8, 8:13, 19:11). Jesus did the works He did in the Father’s Name, and we have been commissioned to do these works and greater works in Jesus’ Name (John 10:25,14:12; Mark 16:17-18; Acts 3:16). When the crippled man desired alms from the disciples, all they had to give to him was the Name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth – which was the authority and power to heal his crippled legs. When the people attempted to give the disciples credit, they promptly informed the people the miracle had nothing to do with them, but was done by the authority of Jesus Christ alone.
