FAITH PRODUCES WORKS
When John was sent to prepare the way before me, the people asked, “What shall we do then?” And the tax collectors said, “What shall we do?” Then the soldiers asked, “What shall we do?”
When I came, I was asked, “What shall we do then that we shall work the works of God?” And I said, “This is the work of God that you believe in Him whom He sent.”
In the productive mind-set of the world, one must “do” something in order to earn one’s way. With such thinking the world tries to earn faith through works. However, to produce in My kingdom is the way to SHOW your faith THROUGH your deeds. What you produce does not earn you favor, gifts, promotion, or spiritual kudos. It is your faith, your leaning heavily upon Me, trusting Me to do the works in and through you that brings eternal rewards.
Both faith and productivity partner together. But to “do” them for the wrong reasons, or in the wrong focus is thinking like the world, which is the mind-set to earn one’s way. My way is grace and always will be grace. You cling to your Source and we will partner together to produce the works of God.
Dearest, you are totally accepted and approved by Me because of your precious faith, which has been tried like gold. Thank you, for your trust and all your labors because you trust in Me to accomplish them.
John 6:27-29 NKJV
Do not labor for the food which perishes, but for the food which endures to everlasting life, which the Son of Man will give you, because God the Father has set His seal on Him.” Then they said to Him, “What shall we do, that we may work the works of God?” Jesus answered and said to them, “This is the work of God, that you believe in Him whom He sent.”
