The Gospel in Calamity

Monty Simao 2014Sermon Notes

Date: 06/01/2014

Preacher: Monty Simao, pastor

Series: Job

Key Text: Job 8-10

Description:  We’ve come to the second of Job’s friends, Bildad. Bildad doesn’t have the diplomatic skills of the older Eliphaz, instead he councils Job in his blunt cruelty.

Job is brought so low in his struggle that he cries aloud for a mediator, one who could stand between him and God. Job’s calamity and pain point out a desire that could only be fulfilled by Christ.

Monty Simao 2014Sermon Notes

Date: 05/25/2014

Preacher: Monty Simao, elder

Series: Job

Key Text: Job 4-7

Description:  In chapter 4 the first of Job’s friends, Eliphaz, breaks the silence and provides council to Job.  It is miserable council.  Eliphaz believes that calamity only follows sin and so has already concluded that Job is in sin and calls for his repentance.

Job is discouraged by his friend and eventually turns his plead to God.  In fact, Job is so discouraged that he requests God turn His gaze away from him and let him die in peace.
