The work of God (John 6:27-29)

Do not labor for the food which perishes, but for the food which endures to everlasting life, which the Son of Man will give you, because God the Father has set His seal on Him." Then they said to Him, "What shall we do, that we may work the works of God?"  Jesus answered and said to them, "This is the work of God, that you believe in Him whom He sent." John 6:27-29

I love old-time preachers.  One of my favorite is G. Campbell Morgan.  He would frequently end his sermons with:

"Salvation is not in running, but in resting. Not in trying, but in trusting.  May the Lord visit us with restlessness until we come to rest in Him."

Praise the Lord that He requires my faith and not my performance.
