For destruction from GOD was a terror to me, and by reason of His highness I could not endure. If I have made gold my hope, or have said to the fine gold, Thou art my confidence; If I rejoiced because my wealth was great, and because mine hand had gotten much; If I beheld the sun when it shined, or the moon walking in brightness; And my heart hath been secretly enticed, or my mouth hath kissed my hand: This also were an iniquity to be punished by the judge: for I should have denied the GOD that is above. (Job 31:23-28)
Job did not put any trust in any thing of this world nor did he expect any thing natural to last. He recognized and acknowledged that GOD is above all and made all things and He is the one we must trust, for Salvation, for our needs, for blessing and prosperity, and even when things seem to go so wrong in this life, for He is our life, our hope, and our peace, even in the midst of the storm. He is above all things, and He is in control of all things, and nothing happens that is not allowed or directed. We are to trust Him and obey His Word, as He lives in us to accomplish His will and do His work in us, and in this sinful and broken world.
His work, through His church, is to serve and minister to people that they might come to know Him. He has called us to be His servants and ministers, reaching people who are hurting and in need, with the Word of reconciliation and righteousness, rightly divided and fitly spoken, as ambassadors of the Kingdom of GOD. He has commanded His family to love one another as members of His body and to disciple one another in the Word of GOD that we may grow in grace and in the knowledge of our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ. He has commissioned His people to take the Gospel of Jesus Christ to every nation, going and serving in the power of the Holy Spirit that is within us, and proclaiming the Good News of forgiveness through repentance and reconciliation with the Father through faith in His Son and His finished and perfect work on the Cross of Calvary, 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.
