Person of Integrity-Job

April 11th, 2018

JOHN SHIRK – Today’s Person of Integrity from the Bible is Job.

In the book of Job, his noble character is described as “blameless and upright; he feared God and shunned evil.”

His faith had the attention of God and Satan. They had a conversation about him. Satan told God that the only reason that Job was upright was because God had blessed him and put a hedge around him. But if God would strike everything he has, Satan was convinced that Job would curse God to his face. Tragedy followed this conversation.

One by one, messengers came to tell Job that he lost his wealth, his sons and daughters, and his livestock. Job responded to the news by tearing his robe, shaving his head, and worshiping God. He said, “The LORD gave and the LORD has taken away; may the name of the LORD be praised.”

The faithfulness of Job to worship the LORD in tragedy inspires us to stay true to God in our brokenness and to live a life of integrity.
