The Minor Prophets – God’s Compassion

And so…God gave the Israelites another chance. Not just a second chance; they’d had those. But a third and fourth and fifth chance – maybe more like a hundredth or a thousandth chance. THAT’S why God sent the prophets – not to declare punishment…but to declare mercy and compassion. When God sent a prophet, God sent that prophet to tell God’s people they didn’t DESERVE another chance, but God was going to give them one…ANYWAY. The whole POINT of the prophets was to give people yet ANOTHER chance.

The Minor Prophets: Be Amazed

Folks, we learn through Habakkuk and the other prophets that God is mighty. We learn through Habakkuk and the other prophets that God IS WORKING…right now, to get GOD’S WILL done. We learn through Habakkuk that we should look around and EXPECT to BE AMAZED, BE ASTONISHED, BE ASTOUNDED…every time we walk through these doors, every time we walk through any doors. God is already doing amazing things. Let’s look for them and get on board with what God is doing!

Good Fruit

Fruit of the Spirit aren’t things for us to work really hard to achieve in and of themselves; rather, they’re the things that will be made manifest in us if we decide to follow God’s Holy Spirit in everything we do.
So…if you want your life to be more filled with joy, peace, love, generosity, or self-control, you’re going to have to take a different approach than waking up every morning and repeating the mantra, “I will have more joy today, I will have more joy today, I will have more joy today.”
