“Jesus said to them, ‘My food is to do the will of Him who sent Me and to accomplish his work’” (John 4:34).

Jesus’ desire to see the will of God accomplished, speaks to his attitude of persistence and unceasing focus all the way to the cross. In fact, “ to accomplish his work” emerges from the same word heard upon the cross, when he said, “It is finished.” That the pursuit of God’s will is a never-ending task means at no point can we say, “I have done enough.” What the Father accomplished through the Son, he seeks to perpetuate through his church, the body of Christ.
