  • Faith Is Work

    Jesus answered,

    “The work of God is this: to believe in the One He has sent.”

    John 6:29

    Sometimes, maintaining faith in God is work. How can an educated person in her right mind believe in a virgin birth? I do believe, but sometimes I wonder why I let myself believe this “foolishness” (1 Corinthians 1:25.).

    A pastor described the difference between believers & nonbelievers like this. Imagine that we all are standing at the shore, and looking at a rickety bridge and wondering whether it will be strong enough to get us across the water.

    Believers are the ones who start walking across the bridge. While we’re walking, we might wonder, “How is this rickety thing strong enough to hold me up?” Yet, it does, so we keep walking.

    Nonbelievers stay on the shore – doubting and criticizing the strength of the bridge, and sometimes actively discouraging other people from stepping on it.

    James (2:14-26) said that faith without works is dead; but faith IS work, and the most important work we can do.

    “For my Father’s will is that everyone who looks to the Son and believes in Him shall have eternal life, and I will raise him up at the last day.”

    John 6:40
