Man Must Choose to Exercise Faith in God
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)
Believe! The work is already done! Many people wrongly believe that their relationship or standing with God hinges upon something they do for themselves.
Nothing can be farther from the truth.
God sent His Son Jesus Christ to do all the work on our behalf. Jesus Christ completed the work of Calvary by shedding His precious blood for the removal of the sin nature of all mankind. He completed His job and is sitting down at the right hand of God at His throne in heaven (in Old Testament times the temple priest never sat down on the job).
The priest’s work was never done but Calvary changed that!
