Work. God started it with creation. And He worked with excellence. In Genesis He pronounced His work “very good,” but His work wasn’t finished.
When Adam and Eve sinned against Him, God set into motion a work He had planned since before the world began. This, God’s ultimate work, would bring sinful men back to Himself. Jesus said, “My food (purpose) is to do the will of Him who sent me and to finish His Work.” (John 4:34, NIV).
His finished work was on the cross where “with (His) blood (He) purchased men for God from every tribe and language and people and nation.” (Revelation 5:9, NIV).
What good work does God require of us?
Jesus said, “The work of God is this: to believe in the One He has sent.” (John 6:29, NIV). If you believe that Jesus was sent by God to die in our place, if you believe God raised Him from the dead to live forever as our friend and king, then invite Him into your heart and life today and let Him finish His work in you. He’s longing to hear from you right now.
To learn more about Jesus’ work read the Bible (John 4:27-42, 6:25-59, 17:1-26), talk to a friend who knows Jesus, visit a Church that teaches that Jesus is God.
