Today’s Reading: Job 16:1-19:29, 1 Corinthians 16:1-24, Psalm 40:1-10, Proverbs 22:1
In a sense, Job is laying the foundation for the New Testament in Job 16:21-22.
21 I need someone to mediate between God and me,
as a person mediates between friends.
22 For soon I must go down that road
from which I will never return.
In his confusion and struggles, he pleaded with God to provide a mediator “between God and me.” He wanted someone to advocate for him as he faced the challenges of life and the inevitability of death.
