Notes from the Journey with the Disciples – 91

91. The work of God is this: to believe in the one he has sent (John 6:28).

The disciples want to know what they must do so they can do “the works of God.” In other words, they want to manufacture bread and fish miracles like Jesus did. They want to be able to perform the unexpected too. But Jesus’ answer quells such desires a bit. He says God’s real intent is that they believe in Him. For them, the focus must be on their relationship with God, and then He will determine moments when their hands will become His. This is the real nature of Spirit-empowered living. Everything flows first from relationship and then we see God begin to work through us.
