Jn. 6:29 Jesus answered and said unto them, This is the work of God, that ye believe on him whom he hath sent. We have argued whether this verse teaches that faith is God's work OR a work required by God from man. The context has been argued both ways. However, there is an easy clear way to settle this argument from the context. If the words "come unto me" can be proven to mean "come unto me in faith" then this demands that John 6:29 must mean that faith is God's work and not man's. Why? Because - 1. Coming to Christ in the manner described in this context requires both the works of God giving and drawing them (vv. 37, 44). Coming is future tense from both works of God "All that the father giveth shall come" and "no man can come except the Father draw him." 2. ALL who are given to Christ come to Christ and "OF ALL" nothing is lost. 3. EVERY MAN taught by God comes to Christ (v. 45) and "taught" in this manner is explanatory of what it means for God to "draw" a man. Therefore, both giving and drawing/teaching are the works of God that are directly precede anyone coming to the Son. Finally, This work of God in giving and drawing/teaching that NOTHING "of all" is lost secures resurrection to eternal life for all that come. This is impossible for unbelievers and so believing in Christ must be inclusive in this giving/drawing/teaching/coming process. 1. The same promise of resurrection to eternal life is directly associated with being given, believing, being drawn and eating and drinking of Christ: 39 And this is the Father’s will which hath sent me, that of all which he hath given me I should lose nothing, but should raise it up again at the last day. 40 And this is the will of him that sent me, that every one which seeth the Son, and believeth on him, may have everlasting life: and I will raise him up at the last day. 44 No man can come to me, except the Father which hath sent me draw him: and I will raise him up at the last day. 54 Whoso eateth my flesh, and drinketh my blood, hath eternal life; and I will raise him up at the last day. 2. Eating and drinking of Christ secure eternal life equally as beleiving in Christ which shows they are metaphors of partaking of Christ by faith: 47 Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me hath everlasting life. 54 Whoso eateth my flesh, and drinketh my blood, hath eternal life; and I will raise him up at the last day. 3. Both coming and beleiving EQUAL partaking of Jesus Christ so that a person's thirst and hunger for eternal life is completely satisfied by Christ. 35 And Jesus said unto them, I am the bread of life: he that cometh to me shall never hunger; and he that believeth on me shall never thirst. 36 But I said unto you, That ye also have seen me, and believe not. CONCLUSION: If coming to Christ secures eternal life it must mean coming to Christ in faith because unbelievers are not promised eternal life. A person cannot come in this contextual sense so that "OF ALL" that come are not lost without first being given and drawn/teach by God. Hence, faith is the work of God in giving and drawing/teaching as coming is the consequence of these works of God. Faith is created by this divine revelation as the revelation produces confidence or is the persuasion that faith consists.
