Jesus came to build up the importance of God’s law, not to weaken it.  He came to free the Sabbath from all the unnecessary rules that made it a curse instead of a blessing.  He could have healed the crippled man on some other day of the week.  He could have healed him without telling him to carry away his bedding.  But Jesus was looking for a chance to challenge the way His people thought about the Sabbath.

Standing before the Sanhedrin, Jesus told them that helping the sick was very much in harmony with Sabbath laws.  He said that it was doing the same work that God does in helping ALL humans each moment of their lives.  

Does God stop working on the Sabbath?  Does the sun stop shining or the grass stop growing? Do the planets stop in their orbits or the oceans’ waves stand still?  

Jesus said, ” ‘My Father never stops working, and so I keep working, too’ ” (John 5:17).

God could not stop His work for even a moment or humans would become extinct.  We also have a work to do on the Sabbath day.  The sick must be cared for and those in need must be helped.  God’s holy rest day was made for humans.  

JESUS, OUR HEAVENLY FATHER ~ DOES NOT WANT ANY PERSON TO SUFFER WHO COULD BE HELPED ON THE SABBATH.  ALL SUFFERING MUST BE STOPPED ON HIS HOLY SABBATH.
