Gathering in Christ
And the LORD said to Satan, “Behold, all that [Job] has is in your power…”
…When Jesus Christ talked about discipleship, He indicated that a disciple must be detached from property and possessions, for if a man’s life is in what he possesses, when disaster comes, his life goes too (see Luke 12:15). When a man is hit by undeserved destruction, the immediate result is a slander against God -- “Why should God allow this thing to happen?” There are people today who are going through an onslaught of destruction that paralyzes all our platitudes and preaching; the only thing that will bring relief is the consolations of Christ.
