What Can I Give Him?

Read Through the Bible in 2 Years: Job 34-35

This morning I woke up singing “Good and Gracious King” by City Alight. It begins like this, “I approach the throne of glory, nothing in my hands I bring, but the promise of acceptance, from a good and gracious king.” Such incredible beauty and depth in those few words.

So, reading Job 34 and 35 these words jumped out at me –

“If you have sinned,
what do you accomplish against him?
And if your transgressions are multiplied,
what do you do to him?
If you are righteous, what do you give to him?
Or what does he receive from your hand?”

Job 35:6-7 ESV

It’s like this quote from Jonathan Edwards, “You contribute nothing to your salvation except the sin that made it necessary.”

Heavenly Father, We have sinned so much in thought, word, and deed. We have sinned against You and sinned against the men and women that You have created in Your own image and yet You remain immoveable and unchanging. You don’t need us and yet You love us. You own the cattle on a thousand hills and yet You bring us into Your family and Your kingdom. What is man that You are mindful of us? How can we ever repay You for all that You have so graciously given to us? We give You our praise and we give You our lives. It’s all we have to give and we give it with hearts full of gratitude. In the name of Jesus we pray, Amen.
