Did Job Get a Passing Grade?

October 24, 2021


“Have you considered my servant Job?” That’s a question God asks twice in the book of Job. Yes, for the last 3 Sundays, and yet again this morning we are considering God’s servant, Job.

I remind you what this Job story is about. Job is put to the test: Satan—not the devil but one of the members of God’s heavenly court who was God’s eyes and ears on the earth—wanted to know: would Job continue to praise and honor God if Job had all his wealth and family and health taken away from him? God gave Satan permission to put Job to the test, so long as his life was spared.
