Beyond Comprehension! We need not wonder if our minds could handle it if God were to reveal his full reality. Even his revelation to Job was limited enough for Job to recognize his own insignificance, yet without being destroyed in Godâs pure light.
Great Sermon! Like Job, I am speechless. The book of Job makes God so much bigger in our minds and makes us so much smaller, which, of course, is the reality. As this pastor says. itâs not specific answers that we need, itâs the revelation of who God is.
Amazing Sermon! There are so many foundational truths brought out in this sermon. And the pastor preaches them with passion, not detached intellectualism. Especially wonderful was the part that explores some of the attributes of God, especially his sovereignty and his goodness, and the tension we feel when we have a hard time seeing both those attributes at work in our particular suffering.
In 9:33, Job declares the greatest need for all of us: an umpire, a mediator who can put his hand upon us and upon God. And of course, that need has been filled in Jesus Christ, our sympathetic high priest, and the only mediator between God and man.
Great Sermon! So good! So helpful for those of us who are in the midst of suffering, to get our theology straight. The pastor said, âJob doesnât see Godâs silent compassion and His esteem for His beloved servant (Job).â
He reminded us that we donât need to have the answers. We need to remember that there is mystery and mercy. God is compassionate, even when we canât see it. He knows that we are dust - Psalm 103.
Wow! What wonderful teaching on the book of Job! This was SO helpful! It has really increased my understanding of this book. God doesnât give us an explanation for our specific suffering, He gives us Himself. And our response should not be a demand to know why, but submission and trust.
