Jesus multiplied a boy’s lunch to feed 5,000 people, but he refused to use his power to turn desert stones into bread when the devil tempted him in the desert (Matthew 4:1-4). The question asked after Jesus feed 5,000 people illustrates how most people misunderstand God’s will.
“‘What shall we do, that we may work the works of God?’
“Jesus answered and said to them, ‘This is the work of God, that you believe in him whom he sent,’” (John 6:28-29).
The Bible teaches us about the many wonderful works of God, but from his perspective, there is only one work. All God’s works revolve around this one work.
Religious leaders have their own ideas about what works please God. Even though well intended, it doesn’t mean God approves or blesses.
We need to understand “the work of God” first. Afterward, all other works will find their proper place within that one work of God, writes Kaung.
The one work of God is to bring mankind to God. Faith in Jesus Christ as savior is the means whereby everyone can receive the benefits of Jesus’ one work on the cross. God the Father will present the redeemed people of God as a royal bride to King Jesus.
Think about this: “Salvation is not something that is attained through human effort, but instead it is a freely given gift. The only ‘work’ necessary is to receive the gift of God for eternal life through His Son, Jesus Christ,” writes Bible scholar J.E. White.
Memorize this truth: John 6:29 quoted above.
Ask this question: Have you learned from Jesus how to accept by faith his one work of salvation?
