Jesus had just healed a man who had been lame for thirty-eight years. Jesus asked this man if he wanted to be healed. Jesus cuts across all the excuses and reasons why he had not been healed earlier. To be healed, a person has to have a "want to attitude."
When Jesus knew the man was ready to be healed He said to him, "Rise, take up your bed and walk." And immediately the man was made well, took up his bed, and walked (John 5:8-9, NKJV).
Because it was the Sabbath Day when Jesus healed this lame man, 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 5:16-17, NKJV). "My Father is working straight through, even on the Sabbath. So am I." (from THE MESSAGE: The Bible in Contemporary Language © 2002 by Eugene H. Peterson. All rights reserved.) "My Father has worked [even] until now, [He has never ceased working; He is still working] and I, too, must be at [divine] work" (John 5:17, AMP).
Here in this passage of Scripture in John chapter 5, Jesus is telling us that our God is the God Who never quits.
