Whose Line is It Anyway? Skin of My Teeth Sermon

Passage: Job 19:25-27 2 Corinthian 4:8-10

For I know that my vindicator lives and that in the end he will stand upon the earth; and after my skin has been destroyed, then in my flesh I shall see God, whom I shall see on my side, and my eyes shall behold, and not another. My heart faints within me! - Job 19:25-27 With all hope lost, the biblical figure of Job states that he is nothing but skin and bones only escaping death by the skin of his teeth. Despite these circumstances, Job still states in a later verse that he knows his redeemer, his vindicator lives. Job in his suffering puts his sight on the transformative power of the Lord. In this sermon we continue our exploration of popular phrases from the bible and how they provide us new insights in our spiritual life.
