How do we respond when the world is against us?
This week we finish up our "Hope and Rest After Harvey" series with a look at Job 17.
This chapter brings up big questions that we will be looking at: Is all suffering a result of a person's sin? Is there any hope after death? How do we respond when the world is against us?
Job was well acquainted with grief and suffering. He is the Old Testament's man of sorrows, thus he relates well to those who have lost everything in Harvey and those that are suffering as a result. Job asks, "Where then is my hope?" And his hope is found in his surety or pledge as Job calls it, and that surety is the New Testament man of sorrows, Jesus Christ. So I invite you and those you know who are suffering to come and get to know your fellow sufferer Job, and his savior Jesus Christ.
