"My Redeemer Lives!"

- A Lenten Series from the Book of Job

 

The Book of Job is a perfect example of human suffering amidst bad company. Job wrestles with questions like: Why do bad things happen to good people?  Why doesn't God answer my prayer?  Why does my suffering seem to contradict everything I believe?  His friends and even his wife point him in the wrong direction, away from God’s grace, while Job insists on this paradox: God has declared him righteous by His grace, yet God has also allowed this great evil to befall him. Job’s faith clings to God’s Word.  Job knows that God is His redeemer. God will come to his defense against his false accusers, vindicate him, and rescue him from evil. And God does this in the beginning and the end of the book through an atoning sacrifice.

 

Come and wrestle with the questions of Job and focus your eyes on the redemption of God through Christ’s sacrifice. Learn about true comfort and how to give comfort to others. Beginning Ash Wednesday, March 6 and continuing through the weekend services and Wednesdays of Lent, I will be taking you through the book of Job in a series I will call, “My Redeemer Lives!”
