Psalm 3, Job 21.1-21, John 8.39-59 - Lectionary for 2/26/11

Today's readings are Psalm 3, Job 21.1-21, and John 8.39-59.

Things are not always as they seem. The Psalmist sees enemies all around, rising against him. The world is full of dangers. Job observes the evil people prospering and appearing to have wealth and power which will last forever. Yet God paints a very different picture of the world, one in which Gid will come in the last day and make all things right, according to his wisdom, goodness, and sovereign power. Therefore we do not have to fear, though thousands surround us, full of hostility. God has chosen to redeem the world through Jesus Christ, God the Son. He will gather all who come to him in faith in the last day. There is nothing to fear.
