Today’s reading: Job 22:2-3

Does God need us?

We read in Job 22:2-3:

2 “Can a man be profitable to God,
Though he who is wise may be profitable to himself?

3 Is it any pleasure to the Almighty that you are righteous?
Or is it gain to Him that you make your ways blameless?

In our arrogance and pride, we might feel that God needs us. We might think that His work on earth can’t be done without us. We might think that the Church will not be as effective as it should be without us.

In Job 22, Eliphaz was about to throw bizarre and made-up accusations at Job. The opening verses serve as an introduction to what Eliphaz has to say.

While the majority of Eliphaz’s speech wasn’t sound, what he said initially deserves our attention.

He was saying that man isn’t profitable to God. Whether a man is righteous and blameless or not, God is still God. Whether we praise God or not, we obey Him or not, it doesn’t change who God is.

The way we live doesn’t change the fact that Yahweh is still sovereign. Indeed, God doesn’t “need” us, but we must still remember that God desires us. It is God’s pleasure to give us His Kingdom. God is pleased when we obey Him.

Yes, God is God without us, but we are nothing without God.

If you think about it, God is not obliged to perform the painful sacrifice of giving up His Son and saving us, frail and rebellious human beings.

However, because of God’s grace, mercy, and love, He took the steps to reach out to us and call us into the Body of Yahshua.

Every day, we must be thankful for how God could have simply ignored us, but still, He chose to love us. Indeed, we loved God because He first loved us.
