“What I am anxious to see in Christian believers is a beautiful paradox. I want to see in them the joy of finding God while at the same time they are blessedly pursuing Him. I want to see in them the great joy of having God yet always wanting Him.” A. W. Tozer

Sermon #26: 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 (NIV)

You might be asking yourself the same question: "What must I do to do the works God requires?" 

Jesus replies as follows: "The work of God is this: to believe in the one he has sent."

Jesus' response is pregnant with teaching. The Lord wants us to always recognize and acknowledge the indispensable role that He played for our sake. That's the greatest work a Christian could ever do!

The Father gave us His one and only Son for a specific purpose - our salvation. That purpose could not be achieved by any other method. We therefore should always recognize this, otherwise we nullify the power of the cross in our lives.

There are various other activities that we do within the context of "the work of God". Such works are pivotal to the advancement of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. However, none of these can substitute the work that Jesus referred to in John 6:28-29Important as they are, these other activities are, in reality, out-workings of the main work.

"...in all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make your paths straight" - Proverbs 3:6 (NIV).
