Sermons from July 2023
Zephaniah 1:1-2:3 In response to Judah’s sin, God announces that he will judge his people. Zephaniah highlights the reasons for and nature of this judgement, while in 2:1-3, there is a glimmer (if nothing more) of hope for the righteous remnant. The themes of God’s comprehensive judgement and hope will come out again in part two, next week.
1 Samuel 11:14 – 12:25 Now that their search for an earthly king is over, Samuel challenged the Israelites to search their hearts before the LORD. God has been faithful in keeping the covenant. But will his people do the same? This passage calls us to examine our own hearts. Will we continue to serve God and obey his voice?
1 Samuel 10:17-27
