St Petri Audio Sermon – Sunday 14th October
Job – Resurrection Faith – Pastor Trevor Reu
One of the great books in the Bible is the book of Job. It deals with two of the greatest predicaments facing the human race. The problem of human suffering and whether a person will live again after death.
Job is a good man who suffers greatly – he loses his children, his property and is afflicted with a dreaded disease. His friends visit him and try to help him by attempting to explain his suffering. Instead of helping and comforting Job they only make matters worse.
Whatever argument they put forward as to why Job is suffering, Job has a counter argument.
Job has his problems with God too, and he on occasions challenges him. But he does not lose faith in God. he still has confidence in his saving help. He declares, “I know that my Redeemer lives … I shall see God”.
