Midweek Lenten Series on the Book of Job

The following section of Job and accompanying questions will help you prepare for the upcoming Wednesday midweek Lenten service. May God bless your preparation!

For next Wednesday, February 21

Read Job 1:13–21 and answer these questions:

  1. Can you relate with Job’s catastrophes? How so?
  2. What is the first thing Job did when he learned about his tragedies?
  3. Why did Job bless God’s name? What name of God gives you courage and strength in your trials? Will you bless that name?

 

Job 1:13-21

Now there was a day when his sons and daughters were eating and drinking wine in their oldest brother’s house, and there came a messenger to Job and said, “The oxen were plowing and the donkeys feeding beside them, and the Sabeans fell upon them and took them and struck down the servants with the edge of the sword, and I alone have escaped to tell you.” While he was yet speaking, there came another and said, “The fire of God fell from heaven and burned up the sheep and the servants and consumed them, and I alone have escaped to tell you.” While he was yet speaking, there came another and said, “The Chaldeans formed three groups and made a raid on the camels and took them and struck down the servants with the edge of the sword, and I alone have escaped to tell you.” While he was yet speaking, there came another and said, “Your sons and daughters were eating and drinking wine in their oldest brother’s house, and behold, a great wind came across the wilderness and struck the four corners of the house, and it fell upon the young people, and they are dead, and I alone have escaped to tell you.”

Then Job arose and tore his robe and shaved his head and fell on the ground and worshiped. And he said, “Naked I came from my mother’s womb, and naked shall I return. The Lord gave, and the Lord has taken away; blessed be the name of the Lord.”
