Even though many of the religious leaders seemed to focus exclusively on the outward things they did, there must have been something on the inside of people where they knew that God cared about their thoughts. Look at this verse from Job 31:1
I made a covenant with mine eyes; why then should I think upon a maid?
Job isn't speaking about the actual act of fornication or adultery, but simply looking upon a woman to lust. Sister Candance had mentioned in another thread how that some things are just things we know on the inside are wrong without someone having to tell us thou shalt not do it.
Amen! There are plenty of clues in OT scriptures as to the nature of God and the righteousness that He was looking for.....for those who cared to truly seek and "know" Him.....like David, and the other patriarchs and prophets, and Anna and Simeon...and others from among the people who didn't get mentioned in the bible by name....eg, the remnant of 7,000.
John: You are far better to us than we deserve. We place all of our trust in you and in you alone. You alone are God. You are the way, the truth, and the life. You are the only way of salvation and we worship and praise you.
