Throughout history people attempted to complicate what God desired. Today you can read hundreds and thousands of books telling you what to do and how to act. You can get bogged down and burned out by service. You can become overwhelmed by not matching up to expectations.
But God isn’t asking for what the world continues to desire from you. Jesus said that “the only work God wants from you: Believe in the one he has sent.” BELIEVE in THE ONE He has sent. Believe in Jesus.
If you want to do the works of God, you need only believe in Jesus. That alone is what is required of you. Yes, this will bring you to serve the Lord. But it won’t be complicated—it won’t cause you to become overwhelmed. It will be a joyous outpouring from believing in the One God has sent us.
“Jesus told them, ‘This is the only work God wants from you: Believe in the one he has sent.’” – John 6:29 [NLT]
