On Sunday we finished up our series on the book of Job, and our larger series on 2 of the wisdom books in the Old Testament. We ended our study of Job by looking at how James spoke of Job in James 5.11. In this passage Job is praised for his patient endurance in trials, and God’s purpose, mercy, and compassion are highlighted. We learned that enduring in trials is about growing and being changed, not just buckling down and staying the same. God, in His mercy and compassion, is making us more like His Son even though this often involves pain in our lives.
Here are the bulletin notes with some discussion questions: James 5.11 Notes.
