“Then they said to Him, “What shall we do, that we may work the works of God?” (John 6:28).
This is an important question in the Scripture. Not only that. It is also an important question that one has to ask himself or herself. What we have to carry out the works of God? What should we do to do miracles and wonders?
People saw Jesus feeding five thousand people with five loaves of bread and two fish. They wanted to perform such miracles. They felt that they should possess the power of performing miracles if their lives are to remain useful. That is why they asked, “What shall we do, that we may work the works of God?”
Read about the life of Jesus Christ fully. During the days on earth, He proved that He is the Son of the Lord by performing miracles. He did not merely come as a psychologist. Through miracles and powerful deeds, He also proved what He spoke. The Scripture says, “Then those men, when they had seen the sign that Jesus did, said, “This is truly the Prophet who is to come into the world” (John 6:14).
Jesus Christ wants also you, His children, to do miracles that He did. Jesus said, “…he who believes in me, the works that I do he will do also” (John 14:12). Does your heart long to do great things for God? Is your heart longs to do things that He did? Do you ask what you have to do to work the works of God? In that case, what you have to do is to proceed to get filled with the Holy Spirit and power.
Now you have come into the final days of the world. Most of the people in the world have not come to know who Jesus Christ is. They have not seen His power. There is no use in delivering beautiful and grandeur sermons. Your words have to be aafirmed through miracles. Only then, the gentiles will accept Jesus as God and bow to Him.
Jesus Christ earned the attention of the people by performing miracles. He revealed the power of the Lord practically among the people. He proved through miracles and signs that He is the Son of the Lord. Not only that. He has given promises to enable us to do those miracles. Dear children of God, will you rise and shine for God? Will you prove that the Lord is alive?
To meditate: “Then a great multitude followed Him, because they saw His signs which He performed on those who were diseased” (John 6:2).
