The only work God wants from you // 05-09-18

“Jesus told them, “This is the only work God wants from you: Believe in the one he has sent.”” John‬ ‭6:29‬ ‭NLT‬‬

What does it mean to believe in Jesus? Yes, to accept His finished work on the cross and the death defeating power of His resurrection, but it’s more than just a thought process or a passive idea that I hold in my head. To truly believe in Jesus means to trust in and to rely on Him daily, firstly for my salvation, but also for the plan that He has for my life, which is to love God and to make Him known! The work of believing in Jesus is a life of courageous and radical obedience to Him, so that my belief in Him is clear for the world to see and will bear eternal fruit! Let’s not just say we are believers in Jesus, let’s get on with the work of showing that belief in practice and making this life of faith count 😊
