3. NO, HE TOLD THEM WHAT HE WORK OF GOD WAS.
John 6:29 Jesus answered and said unto them, This is the work of God,
that ye believe on him whom he hath sent. (KJV)
III. THE WORK OF GOD IS TO BELIEVE ON JESUS.
A. THIS BELIEVE IS MORE THAN SUPERFICIALLY, IT CONSISTS OF 3 WAYS WE MUST
1. WE MUST BELIEVE IN WHO HE IS,
Mark 1:1 The beginning of the gospel of Jesus Christ, the Son of God;
John 1:34 And I saw, and bare record that this is the Son of God.
John 3:18 He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not
is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only

John 14:6 Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man

words that I speak unto you, they are spirit,
and they are life. (KJV)
Matt 11:28 Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give
you rest. (Matt 11:29 Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and
lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls.
John 16:7 Nevertheless I tell you the truth; It is expedient for you that I go
away: for if I go not away, the Comforter will not
come unto you; but if I depart, I will send him unto you.
3. BELIEVE WHAT HE DID
Rev 1:18 I am he that liveth, and was dead; and, behold, I am alive for
evermore, Amen; and have the keys of hell and of death. (KJV)
Romans 5:8 But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet
sinners, Christ died for us. (KJV)

saying, Himself took our infirmities, and bare our sicknesses. (KJV)

because I live, ye shall live also. (KJV)

servant, and was made in the likeness of men: (KJV)

obedient unto death, even the death of the cross.

is above every name: (KJV)

glory of God the Father. (KJV)
IV. Greater Works

that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I
go unto my Father. (KJV)

and glorify your Father which is in heaven.
