Models of Workers

 

CHRIST, THE EARNEST WORKER.

(John 9:4).

Christ’s authority for working was because He was “sent;” His model in working was according to the “ works of Him” who commissioned Him, and the necessity that was laid upon Him is seen in the “ I must.” If the following Scriptures are pondered, it will be seen how Christ viewed His life and death as an absolute necessity. Constantly Christ uses the term “must.”

. The must of work (Luke 2:49; John 9:4; 10:16).

. The must of walk (LUKE 13:33).

. The must of death (John 3:14; 12:34).

. The must of preaching (Luke 4:43).

. The must of seeking (John 4:4).

. The must of resurrection (John 20:9).

. The must of increase (John 3:30).
