    Struggling now to be patient and persevere in the midst of making a decision that feels wrong according to what the world tells me but right according to what God tells me. I pray that the Lord will show compassion and mercy and intercede on my behalf.

    What is the message version? I’m seeing a lot of comments about it helping with reading Job. I really love the passages from James we have been reading!

    19Even now, behold, my witness is in heaven,
    and he who testifies for me is on high.
    This translation does not use Advocate but such a neat foreshadowing of Christ our advocate and mediator.

  8. Haley Elmendorf says:

    Something confusing in the Bible to me is when people are talked about as being “blameless” or “innocent.” The only one who was ever blameless was Jesus, so what does this mean? Job’s sins were less than others making him blameless in comparison?

    1. Christina Lab says:

      I agree with you Haley. I’ve also wondered about what this means!

    2. Cynthia Tripp says:

      Christina I have struggled with this myself. Then I started to feel that generally when I see that written, it is in the Old Testament, before the birth of Christ. Do you think that is why we see the error in those words?

      It’s just like saying they are righteous. And yes, there is none righteous, not even one. The only One who is pure and righteous is Jesus. However, just like with Abraham, he believed God, and it was counted to him as righteousness. So I think when they are talking about being blameless and pure or innocent, they are talking about their faith before God. Because Job did sin, as did his children which is why he was always offering up sacrifices. He was always trying to make things right with God. He believed God and had great faith, making him righteous.

      1. Haley Elmendorf says:

        That helps, thanks Chelsey!

    4. Kelsea Merchant says:

      He was blameless because of his faith, just like we are. We are imputed with Jesus’ righteousness when we put our faith in him. ❤️
