The Just One

From BelieveTheSign

Jesus Christ the righteous is the Just One and the Holy One, and "every one that doeth righteousness is born of him. According to the Bible, it is impossible to be righteous without God.

In the Old Testament, the prophet Job was rebuked by the LORD for maintaining his own righteousness when God took his posessions and weath. In the New Testament, a rich young ruler told Jesus that he had kept all of the commandments from his youth; however, he was troubled when Jesus asked him to sell all his posessions and follow Jesus. He had not yet learned the lesson that he had read in the scriptures about Job.


Then answered the LORD unto Job out of the whirlwind, and said, Gird up thy loins now like a man: I will demand of thee, and declare thou unto me. Wilt thou also disannul my judgment? wilt thou condemn me, that thou mayest be righteous? (Job 40:6-8)
