Behold now behemoth, which I made with thee; he eateth grass as an ox. Lo now, his strength is in his loins, and his force is in the navel of his belly. He moveth his tail like a cedar: the sinews of his stones are wrapped together. His bones are as strong pieces of brass; his bones are like bars of iron. He is the chief of the ways of GOD: He that made him can make His sword to approach unto him. Surely the mountains bring him forth food, where all the beasts of the field play. He lieth under the shady trees, in the covert of the reed, and fens. The shady trees cover him with their shadow; the willows of the brook compass him about. Behold, he drinketh up a river, and hasteth not: he trusteth that he can draw up Jordan into his mouth. He taketh it with his eyes: his nose pierceth through snares. (Job 40:15-24)
GOD reminded Job that He was GOD and Job was not, and that neither he nor his friends really understood GOD, as Creator, Redeemer and King. His ways are above our ways and His thoughts above ours, and yet He has revealed Himself to us that we might know Him. GOD made all things and as our Creator had the right to require holiness and declare judgment on those who sinned against Him. GOD has given Himself for our sins, and the promised Redeemer has the right to require repentance and faith on His terms. GOD is King and rules today in the hearts of those who are His and He has the right to require our obedience and service unto Him. He is Lord over all creation now and will one day rule on this earth and over the new creation that has been redeemed in the final consummation of all things.
Until He calls us Home, GOD calls us to serve Him in righteousness as His ambassadors, with the Word of righteousness and reconciliation, rightly divided and fitly spoken, serving and ministering to those around us who are hurting and in need. While we are here, our Lord calls us to love one another, as His family and the body of Christ, and to disciple one another in His Word that we may grow thereby. Until He is done with us, we are commissioned as soldiers in His servants, the saints of GOD, to take the Gospel of Jesus Christ to this lost and dying world, and as we go, in the power of the Holy Spirit, we proclaim the Good News of forgiveness through repentance and reconciliation with the Father through faith in His Son, that those who believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Messiah of GOD, 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.
