Sunday, July 3: Plowshares & Pruning Hooks
Obadiah is a book that is often overlooked as we read the Old Testament. It is short and its poetic layout lends itself to a quick scan. A fast read points out a judgment against someone called Edom. But as we look deeper inside the text there is more to learn than just poetic justice. Like in many of the prophetic books, God reveals something about Himself. In Obadiah, He reveals something that we, as readers 2600 years later, can still find comfort and assurance in. God is in control and His people will experience justice. If I know that God is in control, maybe that changes the way I look at the world. If God is in control, maybe that also changes my perspective on the things that are going on in my life.
Please join us this Sunday as we continue our series called Plowshares and Pruning Hooks.
