I know that my Redeemer Lives!

Sermon on Job 19:23-27, for the Resurrection of Our Lord, Easter Sunday; about the resurrection faith of Job in the midst of his trials and sufferings. A faith that confessed his hope in the resurrection of the physical body and his Redeemer, who would one day stand upon the earth. What other longings did Job express that are also fulfilled in Christ Jesus? How does the book of Job answer the question of why the righteous serve God, even in the midst of suffering? Why is this sentence: "I Know that my Redeemer Lives" of such great comfort to believers?


The Immense and human-sized God

Sermon on Job 38:1-11, for the 4th Sunday after Pentecost, Father's Day, about God's answer to Job's complaint. God speaks from the whirlwind, in a sort of "Father to son talk". Why does God humble Job? What does Job long for in God, during his suffering, and how is that longing fulfilled in Christ Jesus? How do we face suffering?
