Today is Wednesday April 16 2022, and in the word of God for today on this platform will be taken from John 5:17.
For this reason the Jews persecuted Jesus, and sought to kill Him, because He had done these things on the Sabbath. But Jesus answered them, “My Father has been working until now, and I have been working.”John 5:17.
The word of God for today speaks on how the Jews valued the sabbath day so much; that they turned against Jesus for breaking it.
The rules of the sabbath was that one must not work; but go to the place of worship and worship God.
“Remember the Sabbath day, to keep it holy. Six days you shall labor, and do all your work, but the seventh day is a Sabbath to the Lord your God.
On it you shall not do any work, you, or your son, or your daughter, your male servant, or your female servant, or your livestock, or the sojourner who is within your gates.
For in six days the Lord made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that is in them, and rested on the seventh day. Therefore the Lord blessed the Sabbath day and made it holy.
This day was mistaken as the day God rest from all His work of creation.
But in our scriptural text for today, Jesus counters the Father’s rest when He said; “My Father has been working until now, and I have been working.”
Which means that the sabbath day has not yet arrived as Paul concludes below.
Therefore let no one judge you in food or in drink, or regarding a festival or a new moon or Sabbaths, which are a shadow of things to come, but the substance is of Christ.Colossians 2:16-17.
