Plagued by disease and living with multiple losses in his life, Job was also accused of sin by his friends. He asks the eternal question, "How can a man be righteous before God?" and he laments that there is no mediator between man and God.
It wasn't until Jesus came that the mediator, the solution for man's unrighteousness, was revealed. In his new series, Job Meets Jesus, Pastor Skip Heitzig examines the universal questions raised by the patriarch, and presents the hope voiced by Job, "I know that my Redeemer lives."
This. Is. Life Changing!
I have recently studied the book of Job, which was why I was drawn to this title. On discovering (through another book), that the speaker, Pastor Skip, subsequently died, this subject matter and his presentation of it, is even more powerful, because he makes mention of the illness that subsequently kills him.
But this review of the book of Job and how Jesus gives us the answer to the questions that Job poses (but that He never gets to hear), is really eye opening. And heart opening. And mind blowing! Even though it's a series of sermons, it's also an in-depth study, seamlessly edited, and very approachable.
I shall return to this study again. Soon. A fitting Swan Song. I hope that God blessed him and that he Rests in Hope.
