Friday, July 7th: Job 34-35, Acts 15:1-21

Today's passage from the Bible In a Year Reading Plan is: Job 34-35, Acts 15:1-21

Job 34:10, 12
Therefore listen to me, you men of understanding.
It is impossible for God to do wrong,
and for the Almighty to act unjustly....
Indeed, it is true that God does not act wickedly
and the Almighty does not pervert justice.

We serve a God of justice.

One day all wrongs will be made right.

All sins will be punished.

That sounds great, as long as we're thinking about all those "sinners" out there. But not so great when we're acknowledging our own sin.

Thankfully Jesus bore the punishment for our sins so we don't have to.

He has instilled that sense of justice within us. We are to fight for justice as we are able, but we cannot forget His example of grace and mercy too.
