Sermon: The Commemoration of Job (OT)

9 May AD 2012

Sermon Theme: Our Redeemer Lives

Summary: Sitting in the rubble of his life, Job could still look forward to his Savior’s day and say, “I know that my Redeemer lives.” The hymn based on this Scripture concludes: “He lives, all glory to His Name! He lives, my Jesus, still the same; Oh, the sweet joy this sentence gives, ‘I know that my Redeemer lives!’”.

My Redeemer Lives
Text: “Oh that my words were written! Oh that they were inscribed in a book! Oh that with an iron pen and lead they were engraved in the rock forever!

“For I know that my Redeemer lives, and at the last he will stand upon the earth. And after my skin has been thus destroyed, yet in my flesh I shall see God, whom I shall see for myself, and my eyes shall behold, and not another. My heart faints within me!”
Job 19:23-27

Collect: O Lord, our Rock and our Salvation, the rejected Stone who became Cornerstone, as the hope of seeing Your Day sustained Job in his trials and gave voice to his confession, we pray that You would engrave Yourself in our hearts and minds and sustain all who trust in You. Let not our troubles in this life cast us down from our secure position in You but keep us steadfast in faith unto life everlasting; for You live and reign with Your Father and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever.
