September 15, 2019

Pastor Bob Bjerkaas

  1. Who Is Job?

        a.  An ancient and “eastern” man

        b.  A wealthy and godly man

  1. Job’s Personal Piety Proverbs 3:7-8

        a.  He fears the Lord

        b.  He shuns evil

  1. Job’s Material Blessedness

        a.  A large and happy family

        b.  A prosperous landowner and shepherd

  1. Job’s Priestly Faithfulness

        a.  He leads his family in worship

        b.  He offers sacrifices – even for “unknown sins” Psalm 19:12

        c.  His great over-riding concern in life: the salvation of others – his kids in particular

Application

  • What part of Job’s life do you most wish for yourself?  The material blessings or the spiritual virtues?
  • How can you be growing in your concern for your own godliness and in your sacrificial desire to “present others perfect in Christ.”  Colossians 1:28
  • Are your sins atoned for?
