Works for God?


Hey Friend, how you doing with Jesus? Is your relationship good? 
A lot of people are trying to please God through their works, or performance, but God’s blessings do not come that way. Ephesians 2:8 tells us, “ We are saved by faith, not works, so that man can’t boast about how he did it himself...” No, our relationship with God is built on our faith in “the promises from God” – not performance of good works by you or me. 
In the Bible some people were asking Jesus about what they could do to please God, and His response still rings true today... 
Then they said to Him, “What shall we do, that we may work the works of God?” Jesus answered them, “This is the work of God, that you believe in Him whom He has sent.” John 6:28-29

Wow, when we simply believe Him something powerful springs out that we call faith. 
Walking by faith is doing the work of God... So, work hard at walking by faith...

Peace, Karl
