Job 42:5. I had heard of you by the hearing of the ear, but now my eye has seen you.

Job obeyed God’s commandments because he was taught to do so. We can also obey through teaching. God wants more than obedience. God wants our fellowship, our love and our worship. Our question is do we think if we live good, moral lives we will have eternal life with God? God says our good works are as filthy rags. We sinful beings cannot be good enough on our own. It takes seeing God with spiritual eyes given us by His Holy Spirit. We don’t see Hod in a physical sence but we see Him in a spiritual sence. We see His love, power, forgiveness and character. When we see God this way we realize how really filthy we are. How do we get clean enough for fellowship with God? There is only one way. The way is through the shed blood of God’s only Son, Jesus Christ. When we accept Jesus as our Lord ans Savior our filthyness is covered with His blood and our sins cleansed through forgiveness. Then, with the help of His Holy Spirit we can learn to imitate the way He walked on this earth. We learn to become “little Christs” which up is what the word “Christian” means.
