hi. my name's Melissa. Jesus Christ is all i need. i'm 23. i like baking, tea, coffee, and sushi. i don't like mornings, and i want to be there for you. i'm pretty tiny.
these are some things that i like,
these are some things that i love.

"I am not a product of my circumstances. I am a product of my decisions."

 

Christ will never be cool. Terrifying, life-changing, shocking, and iconoclastic, but never cool. Jesus is not my homeboy. The Gospel will always be relevant but never trendy.

I went to the o.c fair with a dear friend that I’ve grown quite fond of our friendship. It’s just beginning to blossom and I can see God moving and working through each exchange of words. I am so thankful.  We got to stop at the very top of the ferris wheel. It reminded me of the perspective God is constantly able to view. Watching all of creation light up and still being able to view the dark areas. How the darkness can’t hide when light is exposed to it. Idk. It was rare and delightful.

Job 15 - Emphatic Eliphaz
Big Idea:
Eliphaz speaks up for a second time.
He accuses Job of being both foolish and sinful, “Your sin prompts your mouth.”
Eliphaz tells Job to stop questioning God, “Do you listen in on God’s council?”
He says that, if even angels are imperfect, men must be especially corrupt, “What are mortals … that they could be righteous?”
Again, Eliphaz insists that an evil person will suffer justly, “because he shakes his fist at God.”
He concludes by indirectly comparing Job to an evil man, “like a vine stripped of its unripe grapes.”
Jesus:
Again, Eliphaz is half right. Men are fallen, God is just, and evil will be punished.
But, again, Eliphaz is wrong to assume that God will respond to evil in a way that makes sense to us.
Ultimately, God responds to our sin with the Cross. Jesus lived the perfect life we couldn’t live, and suffered the punishment we deserved to suffer.
