The Work of God

“Then they asked him, “What must we do to do the works God requires?” Jesus answered, “The work of God is this: to believe in the one he has sent.” John 6:28-29

Often times we are looking for what God wants us to do. We struggle with indecision; afraid of making the wrong move. We want to do what God wants but we can’t discern His voice. People have abandoned their faith for lack of clear direction.

What God asks us to do, however, is quite simple – believe in the One He sent. So many times we think the focus is on us – “God what should I do? Where do you want me to go?” But really the focus should be on Him. And our moment of indecision should be washed away in faith.

This is easier to write than do. It’s something I practice imperfectly at best. But, it’s nevertheless the right thing. And sometimes knowing that makes the step next even easier.
