Jobโ€™s three friends are still insisting that his suffering must be because of his own sin. They are sure that if he would only come up with a perfect repentance or if he only had enough faith, God would heal him.


Job points out that if their positions were reversed he could do the same thing they are doing. He could keep urging them to repent, and make them feel guilty. He could beat them down with the idea that there must be some other sin they havenโ€™t thought of yet or that they are just not believing hard enough.

He tells them, "๐˜ ๐˜ฉ๐˜ข๐˜ท๐˜ฆ ๐˜ฉ๐˜ฆ๐˜ข๐˜ณ๐˜ฅ ๐˜ฎ๐˜ข๐˜ฏ๐˜บ ๐˜ด๐˜ถ๐˜ค๐˜ฉ ๐˜ต๐˜ฉ๐˜ช๐˜ฏ๐˜จ๐˜ด; ๐˜ฎ๐˜ช๐˜ด๐˜ฆ๐˜ณ๐˜ข๐˜ฃ๐˜ญ๐˜ฆ ๐˜ค๐˜ฐ๐˜ฎ๐˜ง๐˜ฐ๐˜ณ๐˜ต๐˜ฆ๐˜ณ๐˜ด ๐˜ข๐˜ณ๐˜ฆ ๐˜บ๐˜ฐ๐˜ถ ๐˜ข๐˜ญ๐˜ญ!โ€โ€ญโ€ญ (Jobโ€ฌ โ€ญ16:2โ€ฌ)

Or, he could also instead give them words of comfort and solace, reminding them of Godโ€™s love for them and helping them to trust Him. Turning their eyes on Jesus they would find peace and comfort in their suffering.


Faith canโ€™t be commanded. We canโ€™t bring someone to trust in God by ordering them to trust in God. Faith springs to life in our hearts when we see how trustworthy God is, how good He is, and how great is His love for us.


Faith is created in our hearts when we get a good look at Jesus. The more clearly we see Him, the better we get to know Him, the more readily faith is born in our hearts.
