The Work Of God

“Then they said to him, “What must we do, to be doing 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 ESV)

By faith, you and I are not defined by our own works.  Our works are by-products of who God created us to be.  When we believe, welcome and receive Jesus Christ  into our lives as Lord,  Savior and King, we become new creations in Him.  With this new heavenly identity that we have, new life arises that produces new deeds.  It is never out of compulsion that we force ourselves to do good works.  They are simply produced by abiding in the presence of the One Who made us new.  Old things have passed away and the new has come.   We become born again, born of God, born not of corruptible seed but of the incorruptible seed of the Word of God and partakers of His divine nature.

“Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. The old has passed away; behold, the new has come.”  (2 Conrinthians 5:17)
