Belief is the work God requires
❇️ Many Jews were not able to understand what Jesus was talking about and hence they called him demon possessed.
❇️ This lack of understanding was due to their ignorance of all the prophecies about our Lord and their disbelief in the word of God. This can be inferred from the following verses.
▪️Then they asked him,”What must we do to do the works God requires? (6:28)
▪️Jesus answered, “The work of the God is this; to believe in the one he has sent.”(6:29)
Further Jesus told them the following words
▪️I tell you the truth, he who believes has everlasting life(6:47)
▪️I am the living bread that came down from heaven. If anyone eats of his bread,he will live forever (6:51)
▪️The word I have spoken to you are spirit and they are life. Yet some of you do not believe (6:63 &64)
❇️ From the above verses one can infer that the word of God is living because they are spirit. They can cleanse us from our sinfulness (Jn.15:3) and can quicken us as they are spirit (Jn.6:63)
❇️ Thus we know those who did not believe the word of God because their minds were blinded (2 Cor.3:14), missed out on the eternal life.
❇️ Since Christ is the word of God we believe & love the word of God.When we love the word of God we will obey it (Ps.119:167). Our obedience will entitle us to claim the promises it offers.
❇️ Let us believe, love and obey the word of God to receive anything we ask from him (1Jn.3:22)
