What an outstanding endorsement from God about Job, “There is no one on earth like him, he is blameless and upright, a man who fears God and shuns evil” (Job 1:8). God sees our heart and character – if we just have a façade or if we are genuine all the way through.
Am I a good advertisement for Christ?
John the Baptist a high recommendation (Mt 11:11-14). Live so God is able to speak highly of you too. Will He be able to say to you, “Well done good and faithful servant” (Mt 25:21,23).
“Tabitha…was always doing good and helping the poor” (Act 9:36). Her benevolent character shone out from her life. Paul said of Timothy, “I have no-one else like him, who takes a genuine interest in your welfare” (Phil 2:20). Could others make glowing yet truthful recommendations about me?
We bear witness to Jesus [recommend Him] by both our words and deeds. Do I make others thirsty for Him by the way I live (Mt 5:13)? Does the quality of my workmanship meet His standards? (2 Tim 2:15). If I were the boss would I employ me?
