Jesus Is Always Available on the Sabbath

Have you heard the saying, “Some people are so heavenly-minded that they are no earthly good”? The Pharisees were so Sabbath-minded that they were no earthly good. They worried about their righteous standing before God and did not notice the obvious: a woman “crippled by a spirit for eighteen years”.
Scripture says, while teaching on the Sabbath, Jesus made clear that God was available for doing good on the Sabbath too – even if the Pharisees weren’t. Our Lord was interested in bringing hope in God’s Kingdom, in which all will have full life forever. He called the woman to him and said, “You are set free from your infirmity”. Jesus placed his hands on her crooked body and filled her with God’s healing. At once, she was healed and she praised God. Joy came to her on the day that was meant for freedom and worship.
Today, some are not happy with Jesus’ healing on the Sabbath. The Pharisees were unhappy because Jesus healed someone on the Sabbath, a day meant for no work. Jesus, however, knew the Sabbath was for doing good and showing grace in the name of the Father. He restored the Sabbath to its original intent: that all good things come from God, who is always available to help us. Thank God He never takes a sabbath off from caring for you and me!
“Woman, you are set free from your infirmity.” (Luke 13:12).
Let’s Pray
Yahweh, you are Lord of the Sabbath. Father, help me see that you are always available for your children who cry out to you. Hear my cry o Lord, today, I pray in Jesus’ name. Amen.
