This morning I was reading Job. God took a break from his long questioning and Job knew how to answer. . . he had no answer at all.

“Then Job answered the LORD, and said,
Behold, I am vile; what shall I answer thee? I will lay mine hand upon my mouth.”

Job 40:3-4

When I stand before God, I’ll have nothing to say for myself. There is no defense I can offer for my actions.

My only hope is to turn and cling to the cross of Jesus Christ who paid it all for me.

Here’s a four step thought process my small mind went through the other night. . .

1. There’s so much sin around. The people who push wicked agendas seem to have so much success as our culture continues its downward spiral to lawlessness. People mock God with every thing they do.

2. David had the same complaints all those years ago. In the Psalms he often begged God to avenge himself on the people who openly attacked Him. David hated to see sin too.

3. The big spectacular sins and the focus of our world are easy to see. . . but what’s the difference with my sin? I sinned today, and that was as much transgression of God’s law as any of the sins I was thinking of. In fact, I know better. I have reason to do better. I’m a child of the King, and still I sin.

4. I’m so grateful for the cross. It’s my only hope.

Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, which according to his abundant mercy hath begotten us again unto a lively hope by the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead.

– 1 Peter 1:3

“The Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us,

(and we beheld His glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,)

full of grace and truth.”

“Behold the Lamb of God, which taketh away the sin of the world.”

Merry Christmas! :)
