Devotions on the Book of Job (Thursday, Week 13)

July 21, 2016 | by: Ben O'Donoghue | 0 Comments

This week we are looking at the newcomer to the “let’s fix Job" mix- the young and fired-up Elihu. Christopher Ash is right when he says that there are only two ways we can listen to Elihu: either he is a false prophet or he is a true prophet. Ash argues for the latter (as summarised in Tuesday’s devotion). For what it&rsqu... Keep Reading

Devotions on the Book of Job (Thursday, Week 12)

July 14, 2016 | by: Ben O'Donoghue | 0 Comments

Job’s interactions with his friends and before God have taken him a long way since the agonised darkness of chapter 3. In spite of his deep and drawn out suffering, he has remained steadfast in his resolve, and even displayed moments of profound hope (as we saw in Job 19:25-27). There is much more ground yet to be travelled, but chapte... Keep Reading

We return this week to our extended journey through the Book of Job. As we have noted a number of times, Job is not a book to rush through. The themes of God’s sovereignty and undeserved suffering cannot be summarised in a few dot points. As we make our way through the various speeches and responses between Job and his ‘comforter...

Devotions on the Book of Job (Tuesday, Week 11)

June 21, 2016 | by: Ben O'Donoghue | 0 Comments

One of the most pressing issues in the book of Job the whole question of “Why”. Why is Job hauled through such a harrowing experience? Why is this upright man of integrity and faithfulness suffering so desperately? Why is God allowing this to happen? Why….? And yet this question is not directly answered. At least not in a...

Devotions on the Book of Job (Thursday, Week 10)

I am always so encouraged by the testimony of those who remain faithful in the midst of suffering. Elisabeth Elliot is a wonderful example. Her first husband was Jim was one of the 'Ecuador Five'- missionaries who were murdered by members of the Auca tribe as they sought to bring the gospel into the jungles of Ecuador. This is an amazing sto... Keep Reading

As we have continued to work through the book of Job we have listened as even Job’s closest friends turn on him. We have considered what they have had to say- the three not-so-comforters, Eliphaz, Bildad and Zophar. We have heard the advice they have tried to give Job- or I should say the abuse they have dumped on poor Job. We tried to... Keep Reading

Devotions on the Book of Job (Tuesday, Week 9)

June 7, 2016 | by: Ben O'Donoghue | 0 Comments

We were to work through Job 19 on Sunday. But the extreme weather, an uprooted tree* and fallen power lines meant that we were not able to gather for church. My wife wondered if there was something in the message which I had prepared that God didn't want us to hear this week! And yet, there was much in the events of the weekend- the power in...
