Job 41—42

To listen to Nick read the one-minute introduction.

The Book of Job concludes with God’s invitation to Job to contemplate one of the wonders of the world. Leviathan, the great sea monster, is presented for Job’s and our admiration, with the underlying awareness that God is the creator of this awesome creature.

The secret behind Job’s restoration is his humility and total abandon to the majesty of God. He repents from all pride and undue anger. His three “friends” receive a rebuke from the Lord. God condemns the arrogance behind their ways of thinking; yet they still have the means to repent.

Job has come full circle. Blessings of life and children return for him. It took much pain and anguish for him to get to that place. So may you find life through your suffering. Jesus found risen life for you in his.
