We see that being Sin conscious, or being conscious being right in the sight of the God right is really big these days, but justifying yourself by Christ and call it a day is very interesting aspect I have discussed over many posts.
But what if you still say to yourself this guy doesn’t know what he’s talk about , living under rules is better. This post won’t force or logically corner you into picking grace. We will discuss the outcome of having sin consciousness or being a perfectionist.
4.And his sons would go and feast in their houses, each on hisappointed day, and would send and invite their three sisters to eat and drink with them. 5 So it was, when the days of feasting had run their course, that Job would send and sanctify them, and he would rise early in the morning and offer burnt offeringsaccording to the number of them all. For Job said, “It may be that my sons have sinned and cursed[a] God in their hearts.” Thus Job did regularly.
We see that Job becomes excessively sin conscious, is it wrong? no comments .
If I were hungry, I would not tell thee: for the world is mine, and the fulness thereof.
8 Then the Lord said to Satan, “Have you considered My servant Job, that there is none like him on the earth, a blameless and upright man, one who fears God and shuns evil?”
According to verse above, Everyone God fearing Christian would come to conclusion yes.
But we see the Devil comes up many times, Questioning then righteousness of Jobs. We see God allows the devil to hurt him emotionally and physically. But we see he gets blessed physically and emotionally at the end by not cursing God.
But being sin conscious literally took him to court which is very interesting, he is tested all through to see if he curses God. But we see in coming verses
9 Then his wife said to him, “Do you still hold fast to your integrity? Curse God and die!”
10 But he said to her, “You speak as one of the foolish women speaks. Shall we indeed accept good from God, and shall we not accept adversity?” In all this Job did not sin with his lips.
We see that Jobs quote the grace of God, how everything he received unconditionally , so we see that he passes the test by Knowledge of grace, but with knowledge of sin he walks into the Exam hall 😁😁
