February 16

O Christ, the Scripture's witness to You - even the "mists and rocks and quicksands" of Job's life "still guides, O Christ, to You" (LSB 523.2):
  • Who, though our King, was bound with a wastcloth as You washed Your disciples' feet;
  • Who, though our Priest, was stripped as You made sacrifice for us;
  • Who, though God's greatest Prophet, was deprived of speech in death, when contempt and mockery was poured upon You at the Cross (cf. Job 12:18-21),
so that You might take away our shame and give us Your eternal life. May Your Father's Word abide in us so that we believe in You, whom He has sent (John 5:38). Amen.
