The Work of God

by Jean-Louis Coraboeuf

"Jesus replied to them: The work of God is that you believe in Him whom He has sent" (John 6:29).

God is the Maker of all things: thus He created Adam to become a living soul (Genesis 2:7). It was He who created us naturally and breathed life into our soul in order that we might live on Earth.

But the Work of God which is meant here is to draw us near to Jesus (John 6:44), to incite in us faith in his Son (John 6:29) and to recreate us in Christ (Ephesians 2:10). In this way we receive eternal life to be always with Him.
