Job 40:3June 6 Morning
Then Job answered Jehovah and said: Behold, I am vile! What shall I answer You? I will put my hand to my mouth.
One cheering word for all poor lost sinners! You think you must not come to God because you are vile. There has not been a saint living on earth that has not been made to feel that he is vile. If Job, Isaiah and Paul were all obliged to say "I am vile," oh, poor sinner, why should you be ashamed to join in the same confession? If divine grace does not eradicate all sin from the believer, how do you hope to do it yourself? If God loves his people while they are yet sinners, do you think your foulness will prevent his loving you? Believe on Jesus, you outcast of the world's society! Jesus calls you, even as you are.
Even now say, "Jesus died for sinners; I am a sinner, Lord Jesus, sprinkle your blood on me and make me pure." If you will confess your sins you shall find pardon. If, now, with all your heart, you will say, "I am sinful, wash me," you will be washed clean immediately. If the Holy Spirit enables you to cry from your heart.
If you ask Jesus to forgive you, you shall rise from reading this morning's devotion with all your sins forgiven. Even if you woke this morning with every sin that man has ever committed on your head, you shall rest tonight accepted in the Beloved of God. Though once degraded with the rags of sin, you shall be adorned with a robe of righteousness, and appear as white as the angels. For "now," mark it, "Now is the accepted time." If you believe in him who justifieth the ungodly you are saved." Oh! may the Holy Spirit give you saving faith in him who receives the vilest.
