Great Words That Require Great Commitment
For I know that my Redeemer lives,
and at the last he will stand upon the earth.
And after my skin has been thus destroyed,
yet in my flesh I shall see God,
whom I shall see for myself,
and my eyes shall behold, and not another.
My heart faints within me!— Job 19:25-27
These are incredible words from Job. A man suffering like he is should not be able to speak them. But because he does, we see a collection of radical contrasts that inspire us to greater faith. Faith in the spirit, and not the flesh. Faith in the future, and not the present. Faith in the unseen, and not the seen. Faith in a Redeemer who will redeem and not destroy.
While Job is a man marked by physical circumstances, he will not let circumstances mark him. He is marked by a living faith in a dying body. A faith determined to see God regardless of the pain that may come his way.
