Hello, God has given me something in Job 10:8 which says,
Job: Job continued asking God what His charges against Job were, and if God was going to destroy him. Job “reminded” God that His hands had shaped Job, and made him. Job said that he loathed his very life. He asked God if it pleased Him to oppress Job. He asked God (after He “reminded” Him that He shaped Job and made him) if He was going to turn and destroy Job. He loathed his life, and he wondered if God would destroy him.
Christians: Christians have been saved by Christ. He has saved us, by dying for us. But, unbelievers have not been saved. They are still in sins. If you are unbeliever then why don’t you come to Christ and be saved? Why not be saved and loved? Christ can fill you with inexpressible joy (1 Peter 1:8-9). If you come to know Him, He will not only save you, but He will give You the Holy-Spirit, and give you joy and love. He will love you, and save you. He will rescue you from sin, like a shepherd rescuing a sheep from the jaws of a wolf. We were all drowning in sins, and we needed help to get out. We needed to be saved from our sea of sin. Then, Jesus jumped into the water, and hoisted us up in His place, while He gave His own life for us. He saved us from sins, and He gave His own life for us. So, why wouldn’t you want to come and be saved? Why would someone accept a life-preserver in the middle of the ocean? Why not come and accept Christ? Why not be saved?
What to do: Here is one thing that we are to do as Christians: Share the Gospel with others. We should help those who are drowning in sins, to see Christ. They need help too, so let’s share the Gospel with them. Let’s help them to see the life-preserver. Let’s help them to see Christ, and if they come to Him, then He will save them and unlock their chains. He will set them free into His pasture. Let’s help them to see Christ and come to know Him, so that they might be saved, and loved.
God: God is so good. He gave His own son for us. He has loved us so much. Let’s give thanks to Him. Let’s praise Him with all of our hearts. Jesus gave His own life for us, let’s praise Him, and rejoice in Him. Let’s praise Him with all of our hearts, and souls, and mind. Let’s give thanks with all of us. Jesus became our perfect, holy, atoning, sacrifice. He saved us by giving His life for us, so, let’s praise Him. He has given us His Holy-Spirit, so let’s rejoice in Him. He has loved us, so let’s love Him.
Application: How does Job 10:8 apply to us? Job was asking God if He was going to destroy him (Job). Well, we deserved to die because of our sins, but Jesus came down to earth, and gave His life for us, to save us. He saved us by giving His life for us. Job asked God if after creating Job, he would destroy him. We deserved to be destroyed for our sins. But, Jesus took our punishment on Himself, and saved us on the cross. He has rescued us. He saved us on the Cross! Thank You, Jesus!
Prayer: Dear Heavenly Father,
Thank You for rescuing me. Thank You for loving me. Please help me to love You more. Please help me to draw close to You. Please help me to grow in You, and more like You. Please help me to walk and talk with You more. Please strengthen me, and other believers. Thank You for dying on the cross for me. Thank You for making me Your daughter. Thank You for blessing me so much. Please help me not to be proud. Please help me to be more thankful. Thank You for blessing me so much. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
Verse(s): Inexpressible joy, 1 Peter 1:8-9,
