The Topic for Today 8 Th December 2023 is “Called to Good Deeds “

Text:  Job 31:13-23 (KJV) 

13 “If I have denied justice to any of my servants, whether male or female, when they had a grievance against me,
14 what will I do when God confronts me? What will I answer when called to account?
15 Did not he who made me in the womb make them? Did not the same one form us both within our mothers?
16 “If I have denied the desires of the poor or let the eyes of the widow grow weary,
17 if I have kept my bread to myself not sharing it with the fatherless—
18 but from my youth I reared them as a father would, and from my birth I guided the widow—
19 if I have seen anyone perishing for lack of clothing, or the needy without garments,
20 and their hearts did not bless me for warming them with the fleece from my sheep,
21 if I have raised my hand against the fatherless,  knowing that I had influence in court,
22 then let my arm fall from the shoulder, let it be broken off at the joint.
23 For I dreaded destruction from God,   and for fear of his splendor I could not do such things.

Key Verse: “What then shall I do when God riseth up? and when he visiteth, what shall I answer him?” – (Job 31:14)

Read yesterday’s Message by Pastor Kumuyi


Job knew his calling, having first responded to God’s invitation to righteousness that unveiled itself in his relationship with those in his circle. He gave of his possessions to the needy and shared his food with the hungry. When he saw the unclad, he provided clothing. How about the fatherless? He rushed to give them comfort, as commanded by the Lord. God said of him, “…there is none like him”. Why was Job moved to these enviable acts of righteousness?

He provides the answer himself. “What then shall I do when God riseth up? and when he visiteth, what shall I answer him?” Job did not want to be like Adam who had nothing good to say about his deeds when the Lord visited “in the cool of the day”. So he piled up acts pleasing to his Lord, according to his appellation as “one that feareth God, and escheweth evil”.

The Lord is keeping a record of all our deeds. They are open to Him. Whether we state them plainly as Job did or we do not, the all-seeing God knows them. These deeds are also not hidden from us. Nehemiah knew his and he repeatedly reminded God to remember him. Mordecai had his recorded in a book which God caused to be opened one night and rewarded by the then King. The fear of God motivated them to always do good to others.

The day draws near when the Lord will perform a spiritual audit. When He visits, what acts will He find in your name? Will He find deeds of mercy according to His will, or works of wickedness and worldliness? Where are the souls you have won for Jesus? Job feared God and so he prepared for Him by yielding to His word: “He hath shewed thee, O man, what is good; and what doth the LORD require of thee, but to do justly, and to love mercy, and to walk humbly with thy God?” (Micah 6:8).

THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: It is damning to meet the Lord empty-handed.
