"God Is For Us" from Job 23:1-17

God will be there for you even if all is against you. Job is doing good, in fact he helps people and he has all things. And now his friends accusing Job all over again in this book again and again.

Once you are bitter, you are not looking better for yourself. We need to surrender your problems to Jesus and don't keep it for surely you will become bitter. We should not be afraid to talk to God when you're bitter.

2 Corinthians 5:19-20
19 that God was reconciling the world to himself in Christ, not counting people’s sins against them. And he has committed to us the message of reconciliation. 20 We are therefore Christ’s ambassadors, as though God were making his appeal through us. We implore you on Christ’s behalf: Be reconciled to God.

Job wanted to reconcile before God. Part of this book is The testing of Job's Life. Nature of men is we want to defend ourselves, but we should let God alone defend ourselves.

In 1 John, you can see in this book that Jesus is our attorney who will never be defeated.

1 John 2:1 My dear children, I write this to you so that you will not sin. But if anybody does sin, we have an advocate with the Father—Jesus Christ, the Righteous One.

In verse 1-7, Job come near to God. When we worship God we should not worship image or anything else but in spirit and in truth.

That's why we have trials, it is the reflection of what we are responding to it, a reflection of Christ Jesus.

Psalm 66:16 Come and hear, all you who fear God;
let me tell you what he has done for me.

James 1:4 Let perseverance finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything.

1 Peter 1:7
These have come so that the proven genuineness of your faith—of greater worth than gold, which perishes even though refined by fire—may result in praise, glory and honor when Jesus Christ is revealed.

John 8:12 When Jesus spoke again to the people, he said, “I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.”

2 Timothy 3:16-17
16 All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, 17 so that the servant of God[a] may be thoroughly equipped for every good work.

2 Peter 2:20-22
20 If they have escaped the corruption of the world by knowing our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ and are again entangled in it and are overcome, they are worse off at the end than they were at the beginning. 21 It would have been better for them not to have known the way of righteousness, than to have known it and then to turn their backs on the sacred command that was passed on to them. 22 Of them the proverbs are true: “A dog returns to its vomit,”[a] and, “A sow that is washed returns to her wallowing in the mud.”

Every good and perfect gift is from above including bad things or trials.

Proverbs 19:29 Penalties are prepared for mockers,
and beatings for the backs of fools.

Romans 11:33 Oh, the depth of the riches of the wisdom and[a] knowledge of God!
How unsearchable his judgments,
and his paths beyond tracing out!

We should see the reality of God's faithfulness to us.

"The Deliverance Of The Lord" from Job 22:1-30

Here Eliphaz insulted Jon that he is boasting that he is a good man, also Eliphaz described Job as a wicked man and Eliphaz described righteous and wicked.

Verse 1-3, what are you good to God?
Verse 4-11, Eliphaz described Job as a great wicked. Eliphaz says to Job are not true and we can see that he is not a good friend.

Verse 12-20, a contrast between the wicked and the righteous.
Verse 21-30, advice of Eliphaz to Job.

Psalm 119:11 I have hidden your word in my heart
that I might not sin against you.

Psalm 119:105 Your word is a lamp for my feet,
a light on my path.

"A True Friend Helps" from Job 20:1-29

It's hard for us to copy what Jesus did, to be a true friend. We have to be thoughtful to others.
1st pt. verse 1-16, a true friend loves at all times and
2nd pt. verse 17-29, do not forsake our friends.

Maybe you encounter friends always talking about his problem, you should not be annoyed to them instead help them. Zophar said Job was a hypocrite of his sin.

Mirth means laughter or fun. Dung means a fertilizer. This is true for those who rejected God, to a lot of famous nowadays. Although he was telling the truth somehow to Job but a true friend will help them in the trials.

Amends means punishment. You should know that as Christians we will surely have hardships.

John 16:33 “I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.”

Even though you have God it doesn't mean you will never have hardship. Some churches teaches if you have God in your life, you will always have blessings and no problems in life but it's not true. Here the words of Zophar are not helpful to Job.

Psalm 44:20-21 20 If we had forgotten the name of our God
or spread out our hands to a foreign god,
21 would not God have discovered it,
since he knows the secrets of the heart?

All the things in the world will not last forever. As a Christians, we should set things on what is unseen. The attitude of Zophar and other friends of Job is not a true friend of him. Because a true friend will encourage not discourage.

"Serve God Wherever He Leads You" from Acts 11

Pastor's Message
John 1:4 In Him was light, and that life was the light of men.
Do you want to have real life? A life that is meaningful? Full of joy and worth? I think everybody wants to have a kind of life. But the problem is that few people find that "life" - (new, change, renewed life) and most of all not many obtained Eternal life.
John clearly expounded, that in Christ there is life, and this life is the "Light of men". In other words, Christ will clear our ways and will give us straight path, so that we'll not turn to right or to the left. Therefore, in Christ we'll have guidance and direction to reach our destination in Heaven for Jesus himself said: I am the Light of world, whoever follows me will never walk in the darkness.

Happy Birthday

Ministering activities are not just for Pastor's and church workers. Everybody can minister if the Spirit of God is in you. Wherever you are you should not be ashame to share the word of God.

Give more time to Spiritual things and be guided by the Holy Spirit.

Be consistent in your service with God and not only at church.

Colossians 1:6
6 that has come to you. In the same way, the gospel is bearing fruit and growing throughout the whole world—just as it has been doing among you since the day you heard it and truly understood God’s grace.

1 Thessalonians 1:3 (NIV)
3 We remember before our God and Father your work produced by faith, your labor prompted by love, and your endurance inspired by hope in our Lord Jesus Christ.

Hebrews 10:19-21 (NIV)
19 Therefore, brothers and sisters, since we have confidence to enter the Most Holy Place by the blood of Jesus, 20 by a new and living way opened for us through the curtain, that is, his body, 21 and since we have a great priest over the house of God,

Serving with your family is the most important thing to do and serving the fellow believers is second.
We should serve God wherever He lead us.

"He Will Never Turn His Back On You" from Job 19:1-28

God prove here to Job that He will never leave us - for God is faithful.

Psalm 118:8-9 8 It is better to take refuge in the LORD
than to trust in humans.
9 It is better to take refuge in the LORD
than to trust in princes.

Trusting Jehovah, not trusting men. Job response to Eliphaz. It hurts our feelings whenever we hear insulting or words that are harsh.

As a Christians, w/ brothers and sisters in Christ, we should always encourage one another and not to discourage.

Psalm 64:3 They sharpen their tongues like swords
and aim cruel words like deadly arrows.

Job was humiliated by their words. Know that if you will cry to God, He will listened to you. It's not literally cry but if you put on your burden to God - know that He will comfort you.

Shrouded means crowded. Like Jonathan in the old testament, If God is for us who can be against us. Even though we are separate from our friends, God will be there for us.

Even though how you disobey, God's will for you or false decision you make, but God will never leave you.

Job's life is a picture of Christ, everyone abandoned Him. Job recognizes that a Redeemer lives, He knows about Jesus. We will be asure that God will be there for us, know that God will never turn back on you.
