“How can mere mortals prove their innocence before God?
3 Though they wished to dispute with Him, they could not answer Him one time out of a thousand.” (Job 9:2-3)
“Now we know that whatever the law says, it says to those who are under the law, so that every mouth may be silenced and the whole world held accountable to God.” (Romans 3:19)
Why does God speak to us about our sin? This is just the beginning of His work in us. He shows us our sin – “through the law we become conscious of our sin.” (Romans 3:19) – so that we might see our need of the Saviour and come to Him, and receive, from Him, the forgiveness of our sins – “But now apart from the law the righteousness of God has been made known, to which the Law and the Prophets testify. 22 This righteousness is given through faith in Jesus Christ to all who believe.” (Romans 3:21-22)
