Why Do Calamities Happen?
Job 1:20-22 — How does one remain steadfast like Job in the midst of suffering? In this sermon from Job 1:20–22 titled “Why Do Calamities Happen?” Dr. Martyn Lloyd-Jones teaches that Job righteously endured his circumstances because he understood two things: who he was and who God is. If a Christian is prepared in their heart for the day of trouble, it will be because they recognize that all they have is given to them and that God is good, righteous, and holy. Some will be shattered by hardship and some will ignore it, but believers will stand firm like a mountain peak in a storm, as Dr. Lloyd-Jones shares. Pursue a right view of God and oneself and live in contrast to the world like Job.
