God Wants To Do Something For Us

John 6:29 is also my favorite, especially when it is translated by God's Word Of Freedom -- "Jesus replied to them, 'God wants to do something for you so that you believe in the one whom he has sent.'"

We, finite human beings, have the tendency to ask, "What does God want us to do?"

Actually, it is God who wants to do something for us!

And what does He want to do for us? Not to make us famous in this world, to make us materially prosperous, or to make our life free from all our problems -- but to BELIEVE in the one whom he has sent.

"Yet I will
rejoice in the LORD,
I will take joy
in the God of my salvation"
(Habakkuk 3:18, ESV).
