Top Text: Free Sermon on Job Primary Text: The Book of Job - Making Sense of Suffering

This free sermon on Job attempts to examine God’s character against the dark backdrop of our suffering.


This is the question humans have been wrestling with from the beginning of time: Why do bad things happen to good people? It’s at the center of philosophy, religion, and sociology. There’s a book in the Old Testament designed to answer that exact question. The Book of Job, the oldest writing in the Bible, tells the story of a faithful man who suffered a devastating string of tragedies. This deeply complicated story teaches us lessons for facing life’s hardships head-on. Job teaches us how to live faithfully despite calamity, which brings us to four principles that help us make sense of suffering:

  1. Suffering is inevitable.
  2. Suffering is easier with good friends.
  3. Suffering endures only a moment.
  4. Suffering allows us to see God’s blessings better.

Scripture: Job 1:1; 1:7-12; 1:20-21; 2:9-13; Job 42:12-13
