Scripture from Today's Liturgy of the Word:
A brief reflection on today's Scripture passages:
Why do we try and make our faith so complex? Why do we have to make so much out of what is so simple? We are no different than the people in today's Gospel that follow Jesus just to see a sign or because He fed them all with a few loaves. Those people were trying to make too much of it all and asked what had to be done to do the work of God.
The simple fact is that believing in Him is all that is required to qualify as a great work of God. Jesus Himself says it in today's Gospel:
"This is the work of God, that you believe in The One He sent."
By doing this one simple thing, all else will come naturally. We cannot truly believe in Him and continue to seek sin. We cannot believe in Him without doing good works of charity. We cannot believe in Him without receiving eternal life. To believe in Him is to do the work of God.
It's that simple.
