The Son of God has no beginning, he was always with the Father. Yet Father and Son chose to make a new beginning, so there was a time when Jesus began his work.
God, you are always at work.
You do not leave us to sink or swim,
you hold all things in being.
Your eyes and ears are everywhere on earth.
And so you are free to make new things,
begin new work, find new people.
Your mercies are new every morning,
Your favour is fresh every evening,
So this day I will delight in your good purpose,
your work in me, your work through me,
even as I remember your work for me
in the life and death and rising of Jesus. Amen.
In my former book, Theophilus, I wrote about all that Jesus began to do and to teach2 until the day he was taken up to heaven
