A Day to Lament (Job 3)

IMG_3879On Sunday, February 19, 2017, Pastor Joe Troutman preached “A Day to Lament” from Job 3.

Jesus Christ rights the wrongs of a sin-cursed world by his death on the cross.

1. Creation Undone—As if his trials parallel the Fall of Adam, so Job wishes he’d never been born, even to the extent that God had never created the world in the first place.

2. Why, Oh Why?—Job assumes joy will only return to him by means of his own death. He wouldn’t take his own life, but endured his trials.

3. A Greater Than Job—The undoing of creation and relief from suffering in death find their ultimate expression in the death of Christ for fallen sinners, which sufferings result in eternal life and joy in Christ.
