Heartbeat - October 2018
October 1, 2018
Have you ever found yourself in the midst of a trial or difficulty and you wondered what God was up to? Maybe you began to question God’s love for you. Maybe your circumstances seems unjust. You thought “How could God allow this to happen to me?” What I’ve observed is that many of us struggle with questions like this, but few of us actually express it.
One of the reasons why I appreciate Job so much is that he gives voice to the cry of our hearts as he process the calamity that God allowed him to experience. Job longed for the opportunity to put God on trial and force God to explain Himself. He longed for a chance to defend his own point of view and explain to God why the things he was facing were unjust. But as Job expressed the deep issues of his heart, he was actually laying out the truth of the gospel and man’s need for deliverance.
We have a new booklet called “The Gospel According To Job.” This resource examines Job’s longing for God to give an account for what’s happening. But more importantly, it points to Jesus Christ who came to provide hope and deliverance to all who would cry out in faith. We’re sending a copy of this booklet as a thank you gift to everyone who supports this ministry in October. Use the enclosed return card, along with your gift of any amount, and we’ll get The Gospel According To Job in your mailbox.
Thank you for your partnership in this ministry!
