Then said they unto him, What shall we do, that we might work the works of God? Jesus answered and said unto them, This is the work of God, that ye believe on him whom he hath sent.
John 6:28-29 (KJV)
To work the works of God—to live in a way that is pleasing to God and to fulfill His calling upon our lives—we are to believe on Jesus whom He has sent. When we believe that Jesus is enough to make us righteous, His Spirit works in us to transform us from the inside out. He reshapes our hearts and molds our desires so that they are in accordance with His will for our lives. This frees us to bear fruit in His name.
