Desire to Do Right
Job 28:28; Ezekiel 3:18
1-12-21, Chuck Musselwhite -- Job is one of the oldest characters in the Bible. He was a wealthy man who had it all taken away in a test by the Devil. Through all the challenges that resulted, Job never lost his faith in the Lord. His fear of the Lord and desire to do right prevented him from falling into sin. He gives a great example of how to follow the Lord through challenges.
The phrase “the fear of the Lord, that is wisdom; and to depart from evil is understanding” repeats itself throughout the whole Bible. The book of Job is one of the oldest books in the Bible, making this one of the first times it is written. King Solomon repeats this phrase several times in Proverbs and Ecclesiastes. Several New Testament authors cite these verses.
Since it is in the Bible from beginning to end, we need to obey. Job 38:4-7 Fearing the Lord and avoiding evil is one of the crucial things a Christian can do. Source
The Lord said: "I have made thee a watchman unto the house of Israel: therefore hear the word at My mouth, and give them warning from Me. When I say unto the wicked, 'Thou shalt surely die;' and thou give him not warning, nor speak to warn the wicked from his wicked way, to save his life; the same wicked man shall die in his iniquity; but his blood will I require at thine hand. Yet if thou warn the wicked, and he turn not from his wickedness, nor from his wicked way, he shall die in his iniquity; but thou hast delivered thy soul." Ezekiel 3:17-19, 33:6-9
