The Message of God's Love

3"Neither this man nor his parents sinned," said Jesus, "but this happened so that the work of God might be displayed in his life. 4As long as it is day, we must do the work of him who sent me. Night is coming, when no one can work. 5While I am in the world, I am the light of the world."
6Having said this, he spit on the ground, made some mud with the saliva, and put it on the man's eyes. 7"Go," he told him, "wash in the Pool of Siloam" (this word means Sent). So the man went and washed, and came home seeing". (John 9:3-7)

God never gets distracted from his plan. His plan from the beginning of time has been to have a personal relationship with people, so God's work always centers on that. Jesus knew that his purpose on earth was to do God's work, and he did that every day with all his energy. He found fulfillment in doing that. Jesus wants the message of God's love and care to be spread throughout the earth, and he set a good example for that himself. He knows that we cannot do his work on our own, that is why God's strength is so important. God's strength will help us to do the work he has for us in sharing his message.
The things we say and do can show others about God and how much he loves us. The longer we walk with God, the more ways he will show us how to be a part of his work. Just remember that we don't have to do his work through our own strength. God is the one who will give us the ability to do his work, and God will provide the help we need.

"6being confident of this, that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus". (Philippians 1:6)

Peace and love,


"Be still and know that I am God"(Psalm 46:10)
