SEPTEMBER 7, 2023 ~ THEMATIC JOURNEY THROUGH THE BIBLE




SEPTEMBER 7 READING…JOB 31 & ROMANS 2


Self-evaluation can be a good thing, but it can also be a bad thing. If we are completely honest in our evaluation of self that would be good, the problem for most of us is that we are a “little” biased in the evaluation of self. Here is a little test we each can do...ask yourself if you allow in your life things that you do not allow in the lives of other believers. If we do this we are not being honest in our self-evaluation. Job was having to defend himself before his friends who were evaluating Job’s life from their perspective. They had no problem judging Job and his life. It is my thought that the things they were throwing at Job were issues they were either struggling with, or involved in. We need the Holy Spirit to show us what He sees when He looks at us…for it is His evaluation that is always true and unbiased. In Romans Paul has to deal with the Jewish religious leaders and people who considered themselves right before God, and in no need of a savior. Paul made it clear that they, like everyone else, would be judged according to God’s truth, not their own view of truth. That is the problem with people today, its not truth that they look at, but their feelings about things. So, they wander in darkness, never coming to the truth of God. God gave the Jews His unchangeable law, and they were accountable to that. Sadly, it was evident that they could never wholly keep the law, yet at the same time, they felt they were special, and more right with God than any others. We, hopefully, have come to the realization, that although we are called to do what is right before God, we don’t always do so…therefore, we recognize our need for Jesus as Savior, to do for us what we cannot do for ourselves.


Please share your thoughts.
