THE WORK OF GOD! 5-28-2017

Jesus was asked, “What must we do to do the works God requires?  Jesus answer was clear: “The work of God is this: to believe (trust) in the one he has sent.” (Jn.6:28-29 NIV)


An old Hymn: Simply trusting every day; trusting through a stormy way. Even when my faith is small; trusting Jesus that is all.

Brightly does his Spirit shine into this poor heart of mine. While he leads I cannot fall; Trusting Jesus that is all.

Singing if my way is clear. Praying if the path is drear. If in danger for him call.

Trusting Jesus that is all.

Trusting him while life shall last.  Trusting Him till earth is past. Till his gracious advent call. Trusting Jesus that is all.

Cho:  Trusting as the moments fly. Trusting as the days go by.

Trusting him whate'er befalls. Trusting Jesus that is all.


Why should we trust Jesus?  He is the one who died for us while we were still sinners  He is the one who is called the good shepherd, and has promised to guide us in the way we should go. He has promised to never leave us nor forsake us. He is the one who now is in the presence of God, in heaven, for us. He is the one who one day will give us a new body just like his.  All of God’s plans are centered in Jesus, and he calls us to trust him and share in that eternal glory.


Don’t be offended and stumble, because of circumstances of life that you cannot explain. We are told not to lean to our own limited understanding, but to trust in the Lord with a whole heart. He loves us and is faithful to us. “The work of God is this: to believe (trust) in the one he has sent.”- Jesus!
