God Wants To Do Something For YOU!

There is a tendency for us to work -- to work to accomplish something for ourselves, or to please others. Even before the Sovereigh Creator, it is normal for us to believe that we can do something for Him.

Consider the words of Jesus Christ:

“Jesus answered, ‘I tell you the truth, you are looking for me, not because you saw miraculous signs but because you ate the loaves and had your fill. Do not work for food that spoils, but for food that endures to eternal life, which the Son of Man will give you. On him God the Father has placed his seal of approval.’ 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 6:26-29).

The last verse says, “The work of God is this: to believe in the one he has sent.”

In the God’s Word of Freedom, we read in verse 28, “The people asked Jesus, ‘What does God want us to do?’”

I love the paraphrase of verse 29, “Jesus replied to them, ‘God wants to do something for you so that you believe in the one whom he has sent.’”

Though the people would want to do something for God, God’s Word says, it is God actually who wants to do something for us!

As we read in part in Philippians 2:13, “… it is God who works in you to will and to act according to his good purpose.”

And what He wants to do for us – not to make us famous, healthy, or wealthy, but -- to believe in the one whom he has sent! For Him, it is more important for us to believe in His Son.

John wrote, “But these are written that you may believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God, and that by believing you may have life in his name” (John 20:31).

To have a perpetual enjoyment in Him is what He wants for His children to have -- and He is working that they could have it.
