John 6:29 (NIVUK)
Jesus answered, ‘The work of God is this: to believe in the one he has sent.’
Sometimes we can get caught up trying to work out what it is God is calling us to do, knotted up waiting for his guidance and direction. It is of course a good thing to seek him and his specific will for our lives, but the crux of what he seeks from us is simple – believe in Jesus and let that belief make a difference in how you think, speak and live.
To quote a prayer from Mark’s Gospel, ‘I do believe; help me overcome my unbelief!’ (Mark 9:24)
