What is God’s work and how does one go about doing it?

In my study of the bible, I came to realise that although the message of the cross (the gospel), was only fully revealed in the new testament, it was infact what the entirety of the bible had been about from genesis to revelation.

This will show that God’s number 1 priority is the gospel (saving the soul of man). Hence, the scripture…. seek first the kingdom of heaven and everything else will be added onto you. Signifying that His work comes 1st and everything else is secondary.

Therefore, man does the work of God by continously leading people to the message of the cross (the gospel). Not only by sharing the message, but also by assisting in every way possible in the spreading of the news.

  4. Hi Notsamson, hope your keeping well, when the Scriptures talk about works there are three different types, worldly works, fleshy works and Godly works, God chooses us, equips, empowers and motivates us for His good works that He has prepared in advance for us to do.

    Ephesians 2:8-10 For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast. For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them.

    2 Timothy 3:16-17 All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: That the man of God may be perfect, thoroughly furnished unto all good works.

    James 2:26 For as the body without the spirit is dead, so faith without works is dead also.

    Amen. Good thoughts!

    “Therefore, man does the work of God by continously leading people to the message of the cross (the gospel). Not only by sharing the message, but also by assisting in every way possible in the spreading of the news.’

    I would add to that the ‘doing’ of scripture…following Christ.

    Joh 14:12 Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father.

    Joh 10:37 If I do not the works of my Father, believe me not. 38 But if I do, though ye believe not me, believe the works: that ye may know, and believe, that the Father is in me, and I in him.

    Jas 2:20 But wilt thou know, O vain man, that faith without works is dead?

    These ‘works’ of course are those deeds born out of a humble and contrite heart transformed by the supernatural power of God…and, thus, known as righteousness. CHRISTianity is serious business.

    Again, good thoughts. Thanks for sharing them.

  6. Thank you notsamson there is much Truth in what you shared according to God’s word and yes we know that Jesus died for everyone but Salvation must be accepted by repentance and believing that it is only in Christ Jesus we are saved and because we are saved our words and actions will reflect His Light meaning Truth through the empowering of The Holy Spirit.

  7. Cool post! I like that you included “seek first the kingdom of heaven and everything else will be added onto you.” Good stuff. I like your posts, they’re really inspiring. I wrote a post about the Kingdom of God, because I realised that nobody knows anything about what it is. We all assume it’s something that still has to come, or something that we’ll experience in heaven. If you want, you can check it out. Cheers.
