Daily Devotional Bible Verse

Jesus answered them, “This is the work of God, that you believe in him whom he has sent.” (John 6:29 ESV)

Have you ever had someone ask you what your life’s work is, or what type of work you would like to spend the rest of your life doing? That can be a difficult question, especially today, when the average worker will have had 10-14 jobs by the age of 38! We quickly move from task to task, even job to job, and often times there is little sense of continuity.

Jesus gives us some great insight on what our answer should be while we are here on the earth. Jesus’ answer to the question, “What must we do, to be doing the works of God?” (John 6:28), is still the same in this age of rapid change: “believe in him whom he has sent.” So the primary, overarching work of our life is believing in Jesus Christ, and walking as he walked. That is our daily agenda. So no matter what job you find yourself in, you still have your life’s work at hand, believing in him who was sent.

Is your view of Jesus high enough, realizing your life’s primary purpose is to believe and become like him?
