David EarnshawDavid Earnshaw, 12th January 2020
Part of the General series, preached at a Sunday Morning service


About David Earnshaw: “David Earnshaw was born in Blackburn, Lancashire. He was brought up by Christian parents, and is the fourth in a family of six children. At the age of fourteen he became a Christian. God called David to the Christian Ministry, and he was led to the South Wales Baptist College at Cardiff. In 1984 David married Jane, a teacher from Pontypridd, and a year later they moved together to Swansea where David was Pastor at Townhill Baptist Church for ten years. In 1995 David received a call to pastor a church in Wiltshire where he remained in position until 2008. He has been an itinerant preacher and conference speaker ever since but has now accepted a call from Inskip Baptist to be their Pastor. David’s chief desire is to teach God’s Word – to preach through the Bible from “Genesis to Revelation”. As for hobbies, David is very enthusiastic about trees, shrubs and herbaceous plants; fell walking is another good pastime.

Job 1:1-12

1There was a man in the land of Uz, whose name was Job; and that man was perfect and upright, and one that feared God, and eschewed evil. 2And there were born unto him seven sons and three daughters. 3His substance also was seven thousand sheep, and three thousand camels, and five hundred yoke of oxen, and five hundred she asses, and a very great household; so that this man was the greatest of all the men of the east. 4And his sons went and feasted in their houses, every one his day; and sent and called for their three sisters to eat and to drink with them. 5And it was so, when the days of their feasting were gone about, that Job sent and sanctified them, and rose up early in the morning, and offered burnt offerings according to the number of them all: for Job said, It may be that my sons have sinned, and cursed God in their hearts. Thus did Job continually. 6Now there was a day when the sons of God came to present themselves before the LORD, and Satan came also among them. 7And the LORD said unto Satan, Whence comest thou? Then Satan answered the LORD, and said, From going to and fro in the earth, and from walking up and down in it. 8And the LORD said unto Satan, Hast thou considered my servant Job, that there is none like him in the earth, a perfect and an upright man, one that feareth God, and escheweth evil? 9Then Satan answered the LORD, and said, Doth Job fear God for nought? 10Hast not thou made an hedge about him, and about his house, and about all that he hath on every side? thou hast blessed the work of his hands, and his substance is increased in the land. 11But put forth thine hand now, and touch all that he hath, and he will curse thee to thy face. 12And the LORD said unto Satan, Behold, all that he hath is in thy power; only upon himself put not forth thine hand. So Satan went forth from the presence of the LORD. (KJV)

Job 2:11-13

11Now when Job's three friends heard of all this evil that was come upon him, they came every one from his own place; Eliphaz the Temanite, and Bildad the Shuhite, and Zophar the Naamathite: for they had made an appointment together to come to mourn with him and to comfort him. 12And when they lifted up their eyes afar off, and knew him not, they lifted up their voice, and wept; and they rent every one his mantle, and sprinkled dust upon their heads toward heaven. 13So they sat down with him upon the ground seven days and seven nights, and none spake a word unto him: for they saw that his grief was very great. (KJV)
