Key Text: Job 1:6-12
Description: In our passage today, we see a glimpse into the heavenly throne room. Satan obeys the summons to appear, and he comes as the accuser of God’s people. God tells Satan to state for the record where he has been and Satan states that he has been going “to and fro on the earth.” And then God asks Satan a question that challenges Satan: “Have you considered my servant Job?”
Satan accepts this challenge from God by saying that if God allows him to take away Job’s blessings that Job would curse God to His face. Job would then be proved a fake and God would be guilty of nothing more than cosmic bribery.
The gauntlet has been thrown down…and it is God’s idea.
