Daily Bible Verse - 10/11/2007 - John 6:29

NIV Jesus answered, "The work of God is this: to believe in the one he has sent."
KJV Jesus answered and said unto them, This is the work of God, that ye believe on him whom he hath sent.
NASB Jesus answered and said to them, "This is the work of God, that you believe in Him whom He has sent."
John 6:29
The crowd misunderstood Jesus' prohibition in v. 27 ("Do not labor") which prompted Jesus to remind them that an exclusive focus on material blessings is wrong. The only work God desired was faith or trust in Jesus as Messiah and Son of God (cf. Mal. 3:1). The "work" that God requires is to believe in His Son (cf. 5:24).
