“Though He Slay Me”

Key Verse

“Though he slay me, yet will I trust in him:” Job 13:15a

Text — Job 13:13-18


A twelve year old boy once engaged the mother in a serious chat. He said Mom, “why is it that you are the woman that spanks me the most; yet I love you so much and you are the best.” The mother responded with a smile and said, “You must understand that the spanks were not because of hatred but borne out of true love to make you the best you can be. The boy responded “Mom, this is a mystery that I still prefer, love and cherish you the most despite all the corrections.” The mother reaffirmed that Love that exists between mother and child is the mystery.

Job so loved God that all the evils that came upon him could not make him forsake God. The three Hebrew children were ready to die in the furnace because they love God. All the Bible martyrs went through all the suffering and death because of their love for God. Do you really loved God? Every little problem makes you cry and feel forsaken by God. Are you just serving God because of His blessings? If you truly love the Lord, you will not be offended when trials, persecutions, delays or denials come your way. Be like Job and say, though He slays me; yet I will trust Him.
