Believe in Jesus

“Then they asked Him, “What shall we do that we may work the works of God?” Jesus answered them, “This is the work of God, that you believe in Him whom He has sent.”” John 6:28-29

The Christian faith is not complicated but simple. Many may find it too simple, they want something more complicated. The Christian faith is filled with doctrines but it rests on Jesus Christ, the Son of God.

When Jesus walked the earth, He was asked what one should do to work the works of God. The answer from Jesus was crystal clear and uncomplicated – Believe in Jesus.

You become saved, a child of God and a Christian by believing in Jesus. Not just believing that He existed or exists, but that you put all your trust in Him. Just as you trust that the home insurance protects you, you trust that Jesus saves and helps.

Then you continue to live your life by continuously trusting Jesus in all areas of life.

“I (Jesus) am the vine, you are the branches. He who remains in Me, and I in him, bears much fruit. For without Me you can do nothing.” John 15:5

When we believe in Jesus, we share in His life, in Himself. It is through faith that He moves into your heart and it is through faith that His life flows out through you. Jesus wants to be your shepherd who guides and protects, your doctor, your provider and Savior.

So, what we have to do is to believe and trust in Jesus and count on Him in everything that touches our lives. Then we will be in the right place at the right time and do the right things. Some unfortunately start at the wrong end and start doing a lot of dead works, which may look good, but which do not flow from the relationship with Jesus through faith. Believe in Jesus.

God bless you.
