The will of God

If we had gone to the carpenter's shop, and watched the holy youth as He bent over the construction of some simple article of furniture, or fashioned some rude instrument of husbandry, and had asked Him, 'Son of Mary, what are You doing?', he might have answered, 'The will of God.'

If we had drawn near to Him, as He instructed the ignorant, healed the sick or opened the eyes of the blind, and had said, 'Prophet of Galilee, what are You doing?', He might have answered, 'The will of God.'

If we had turned to Him as He hung upon the cross, bearing our sins in His own body, and had asked, 'Son of God, what are You doing?', He might still have answered, 'The will of God.' The will of God was the only thing that ever He did.

(from Life in His Name by David McIntyre).
