I know it is so of a truth: but how should man be just with GOD? If he will contend with Him, he cannot answer Him one of a thousand. He is wise in heart, and mighty in strength: who hath hardened himself against Him, and hath prospered?
For He is not a man, as I am, that I should answer Him, and we should come together in judgment. Neither is there any Daysman betwixt us, that might lay His hand upon us both. Let Him take His rod away from me, and let not His fear terrify me: (Job 9:2-4, 32-34)
Job knew he did not measure up to the Almighty, but also knew his sins were covered and he was righteous. Not self-righteous, but having met GOD'S requirements for sin and righteousness He was pardoned by his faith in GOD. Without Christ we cannot answer GOD, nor could we hope to contend with Him who is all-knowing and all-powerful. His ways and thoughts are so much higher than ours. If He had not revealed Himself to us through His Word we would only know through His creation that He exists, but could not comprehend our Creator, Redeemer, and King. He has revealed His nature and character in His Holy Word that we might know Him and turn to Him in repentance and faith for Salvation and the covenant relationship with Him that He offers to us, having already paid the price for sin we cannot pay.
The daysman or intermediary between GOD and man has come, when GOD sent His only begotten Son into the world, not to condemn it for it was already condemned, but to deliver all who will receive Him from the sin and into fellowship with Jesus Christ. That is the message of hope GOD has given us, His church, His people, His body, to go and tell to all who will hear and believe, not just agreeing with the facts, but in true repentance and trust in Him and Him alone. GOD has called His people to go, as ambassadors of the Kingdom of GOD which is within us, to go with the Word of reconciliation, rightly divided and fitly spoken, and minister to those around us who are hurting and in need. GOD has commanded His children to love one another and to disciple one another in His Word that we may grow in grace and in the knowledge of our Lord. GOD has commissioned His church to take the Gospel of Jesus Christ to this lost and dying world, that they might know the Good News of forgiveness through repentance and reconciliation with the Father through faith in His Son and in believing that He is the Christ, the Messiah, The Daysman, they might have life in His Name.
For GOD is not willing that any should perish, but that all would come to repentance and the knowledge of the Truth. Jesus loves you and wants to establish a covenant relationship with you that is real and personal. Surrender to Him on His terms and He will give you a brand new life of discipleship and fellowship with Him that is abundant and everlasting. GOD calls you to trust Him and what He has already done for you to pay your sIn debt. He has provided the only way of reconciliation with GOD, forgiveness from GOD, and Salvation through Jesus Christ, the Son of GOD who is GOD the Son, to give you a new life in Christ. Turn away from yourself and your sIn and turn to Him alone for eternal Life, now and always.
