The Work of a Believer in Christ

Everyone wants to know who Jesus really is.  Even the Jewish leaders of His own day wanted to know who He was.  Jesus’ simply statement about about Himself can be found in John 10:25-26.  Jesus said, “The works that I do in my Father’s name bear witness about me…”

If Jesus’ works bear witness to who He is, then our works also bear witness as to who and whose we are.  Those who do not believe are not part of Jesus’ flock, but those who do the work of Jesus are.  What is the work of a true believer in Christ?  To believe.

God has called us to have faith in His work for us.  Jesus accomplished the work of the Law (salvation) on our behalf.  The work which every believer must do to inherit eternal life is to believe in that work.

How about you?  What do you believe in?

John 10:22-26

I and the Father Are One

22At that time the Feast of Dedication took place at Jerusalem. It was winter, 23and Jesus was walking in the temple, in the colonnade of Solomon. 24So the Jews gathered around him and said to him, “How long will you keep us in suspense? If you are the Christ, tell us plainly.” 25Jesus answered them, “I told you, and you do not believe. The works that I do in my Father’s name bear witness about me, 26but you do not believe because you are not part of my flock.
