Job's Dance Sermon Notes

Sermon 5 of our "Dancing With God" series

Job 1:6-12 - (6) One day the angels came to present themselves before the LORD, and Satan also came with them. (7) The LORD said to Satan, “Where have you come from?” Satan answered the LORD, “From roaming throughout the earth, going back and forth on it.” (8) Then the LORD said to Satan, “Have you considered my servant Job? There is no one on earth like him; he is blameless and upright, a man who fears God and shuns evil.” (9) “Does Job fear God for nothing?” Satan replied. (10)  “Have you not put a hedge around him and his household and everything he has? You have blessed the work of his hands, so that his flocks and herds are spread throughout the land. (11) But now stretch out your hand and strike everything he has, and he will surely curse you to your face.” (12) The LORD said to Satan, “Very well, then, everything he has is in your power, but on the man himself do not lay a finger.” Then Satan went out from the presence of the LORD.

Job 1:20-22 - (20) At this, Job got up and tore his robe and shaved his head. Then he fell to the ground in worship (21) and said: “Naked I came from my mother’s womb, and naked I will depart.The LORD gave and the LORD has taken away; may the name of the LORD be praised.” (22) In all this, Job did not sin by charging God with wrongdoing.

Job 2:3-10 - (3) Then the LORD said to Satan, “Have you considered my servant Job? There is no one on earth like him; he is blameless and upright, a man who fears God and shuns evil. And he still maintains his integrity, though you incited me against him to ruin him without any reason.” (4) “Skin for skin!” Satan replied. “A man will give all he has for his own life. (5) But now stretch out your hand and strike his flesh and bones, and he will surely curse you to your face.” (6) The LORD said to Satan, “Very well, then, he is in your hands; but you must spare his life.” (7) So Satan went out from the presence of the LORD and afflicted Job with painful sores from the soles of his feet to the crown of his head. (8) Then Job took a piece of broken pottery and scraped himself with it as he sat among the ashes. (9) His wife said to him, “Are you still maintaining your integrity? Curse God and die!” (10) He replied, “You are talking like a foolish woman. Shall we accept good from God, and not trouble?” In all this, Job did not sin in what he said.
