Series: Worthy of Worship: The Book of Job
Speaker: Jason Williams
In the sermon this past Sunday, we looked at how, in the midst of his suffering, Job holds on to the hope that God would redeem his story. Half way through the story, we find Job longing for God to step in and write a better story with his life. At the end of the story, God reveals Himself to Job instead of offering explanations or giving Job immediate relief form his suffering. After Job begins to see God for who He is, Job repents and turns to God to worship Him for His infinite power and wisdom. We see that turning to God in repentance leads us to find the consolation of His mercy and the comfort of His acceptance. When we turn to God and ask for mercy, He gives it generously. Job longed to see God more than He longed to find relief or an explanation for why he was suffering. Job discovered that seeing God’s glory is better than hearing God’s explanation. Job found something better than redemption; he found the Redeemer. Whether or not God does anything in our lives, He is worthy to be worshipped!
