28 Then they inquired, “What must we do to perform the works of God?” -John 6:28 BSB
Before one can begin to do the will of God, the work of God of conversion must take place first. Jesus replied, “The work of God is this: to believe in the One He has sent.”-John 6:29 BSB
The person must be born again (John 3:3), having the Holy Spirit living inside him to accomplish God’s plan and will. The reason is that God is the one who empowers to will and do (Philippians 2:13).
Is that all we need to do is believe in Jesus? That’s just the start. Your faith and trust do not end with Jesus, but it trickles down to the Word of God. We have to make the Scriptures our model—to allow it to transform us and purify our thoughts. God’s Word is not just a written document—it’s the very words of God. God speaks to us through His Word and reveals who He is, what He loves, and what He hates.
How can you know how much a professing Christian loves the Lord? Ask him how he feels about the Bible. You will be surprised how many believe that the Scriptures contain errors or even flat out reject some core doctrines.
The Holy Spirit will change the person to love God’s Word
I delight in Your commandments because I love them. -Psalm 119:47
Oh, how I love Your law! All day long it is my meditation. -Psalm 119:97
Your promise is completely pure; therefore Your servant loves it. -Psalm 119:140
We are living in a time of great deception and falsehood. If we are not in the Word, then how can you detect when being misled? Here is a test you can do as a Christian to see who loves God’s Word. If you are in a group and you hear someone say something unbiblical, gently correct them and see how they respond. If they respond positively, you have won your brother back to walk in the truth. However, if they respond negatively, you will see how they feel about Jesus. A believer who loves the Lord will equally love His Word and would want to understand it accurately so that they can live by it and please the Lord.
