15 Though he slay me, yet will I trust in him: but I will maintain mine own ways before him.
-As far as milestones of the faith are concerned, this is incredible by any measure. Notice that Job doesn’t say that even if the Lord slays him, he will obey; that’s a given because if the Lord decides that it’s time to end your life, you don’t really have any choice. But Job was so confident in the Lord, that even if the Lord took away everything, he would still believe Him, still have confidence in Him- still trust in Him. Jesus demonstrated this faith when He chose to drink the bitter cup of mankind’s sin. (Matthew 26) Until you and I can confidently make the same claim as Job, there will always be something lacking in our spiritual life. It may seem outrageous, but it is nothing more than our reasonable service. (Romans 12:1)
