In this Lenten season, we begin a series on The Story which is God’s Story speaking of His plan to redeem the world of it’s sin. This Story focuses on the life of Jesus Christ who is the Savior and Redeemer or Hero of this Story. We begin the story in Genesis and continue to tell the Story through the entire Bible.
God finally shows up after months of silence as Job suffers. In coming to Job, the Lord opens Job’s heart and mind to Himself. Once Job sees God, He is enough.
When the innocent suffer, wisdom is needed to learn, grow, and work through the circumstances. Yet, the only place this wisdom is found is in God.
Three friends visit Job because they heard of his great loss. Job told his friends, he couldn’t understand why these bad things have happened. In return, the friends insisted that Job was getting what he had coming to him. They were miserable comforters.
