The crowds were following Jesus like they were watching a traveling sideshow at a carnival. Jesus scolded them for always wanting Him to perform miracles. He challenged them to do the works of God (not to continually ask Him to do them). They asked “what shall we do to work the works of God”? He said the work needed was to believe in Him. It really is all about our attitude when coming to Jesus.
Am I humble? Do I really believe? Have I put my obedient trust in Him? Yes. That’s my part.
God, having believed in You… I find endless works waiting for me. I certainly want Your miraculous working power in my life, but I recognize that its really up to me to initiate the works of God in the world. Continue to keep my heart open and my motivation high as I serve You and as I reach out and love people in Your name.
