What shall we do, that we may work the works of God? Jesus answered and said to them, “This is the work of God, that you believe in Him whom He sent.” John 6:28-29
Most people when asked how to DO the works of God will respond by saying that we must pray more, fast more, know our enemy and so on. In the Gospel of John, we find Jesus being asked the same question by the multitude who had been amazed by His miracles. They ask, “What shall we do, that we may work the works of God?”
The people had seen Jesus healing the sick and feeding 5,000 men with only five loaves and two fish. Notice how Jesus answered them. “This is the work of God, that you believe in Him whom He sent.” Friends, the greatest DOING is believing, believing in Jesus the sent One, who has done it all for you at the cross.
So, if you’re asking, “What must I DO to receive my healing?” The answer is this. Believe in Jesus, who “Himself took our infirmities and bore our sicknesses” (Matthew 8:17). There have been many people delivered from life threatening conditions such as cancer, kidney failure and many other diseases.
They had simply believed that Jesus bore their diseases in His own body. There was nothing for them to DO, except to believe.
In Acts 16:30-31, When the jailer asked Paul and Silas, “Sirs, what must I DO to be saved?” They said, “Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ and you will be saved, you and your household”.
The greatest miracle in your life happens not by you working and trying to save yourself, but by you simply believing in Jesus who died to save you from eternal damnation and to give you eternal life.
Why then, should the lesser miracles of healing or financial breakthroughs be any different? Friends, what is the miracle you need today? There is nothing for you to DO, but everything for you to BELIEVE, because Jesus has done it all for you.
So, you see. You can DO the works of God by simply believing what His Word says about you. Praise the Lord for His wonderful faithfulness to us. Hallelujah.
