The Sinner's Daysman
Job 9:33
Neither is there any judge between us, that might lay his hand on us both.

All that a sinner needs he may find in the Saviour.

I. THE SINNER NEEDS A "DAYSMAN." Nothing but a sense of sin will ever lead a man in reality to seek a Saviour.

1. Mark the situation in which the sinner stands before his God — a condemned criminal

2. The sinner cannot plead his own cause.

3. There are none around to befriend his cause.

II. A "DAYSMAN" IS PROVIDED. The Gospel is called the "ministry of reconciliation." It bears this name because it points to Jesus as the sinner's "daysman." He is fitted for the character He sustains, and He effectually discharges the office.

III. THE IMPORTANCE OF OUR SEEKING AN INTEREST IN THIS "DAYSMAN." He is not our "daysman" unless we have sought Him. We must come to Him, and it must be by faith. The interest in Him surely should be sought at once.

(G. Hadley.)
