When Bad Things Happen: Survey of the Prophecy of Joel
We don’t have to look to far in the past to recount some bad things that have
happened in our world. Natural disasters, a global pandemic, tragedies of
violence, and war are splashed in front of us daily. What are we to do? How
are we to respond? Where is God? Today we will discover a question that may
be uncomfortable: What could God be saying to us when bad things happen?

    Letters from a Loving Father (Hosea 11-14)
    In a unique approach we are going to view the final chapters of Hosea as letters written from a loving, yet hurting Father to a wayward child. One of the things that we will discover is that God’s heart is not a heart of angry punishment. He longs for all to see the error of their ways and to return to him. For those who choose otherwise, God painfully allows them to experience the consequences of sin. As a loving Father, God wants all his children to be close to him.

    The Flimsy Defense: Trusting One’s Own righteousness (Luke 18:9-14)
    In a brief parable in which we see the different approaches of two men who come to God in prayer we are reminded of a very important reality. We must always approach God from a heart of humility. Pride will always move us away from God and deeper into ourselves. God is never drawn to human pride.

    God as a Presiding Judge (Hosea 8-10)
    Following God may be hard in regards to challenges we face and ways God asks us to express our obedience. And yet it is also quite simple. Just keep one’s focus on God and strive to love him and others. As God passes down his sentence on the nation of Israel, we will find glimpses of God wanting more for his people. Even a good human judge would rather see a guilty person learn and change.

    God as a Prosecuting Attorney (Hosea 4-7)
    God does not ignore our sin. God does not gloss over our sin. He calls out his people for their actions and their attitudes. And yet in the middle of his pointing out their failures, he continues to appeal for them to change their heart and their actions and to return to Him. God continually offers to us the opportunity to turn around and return to him.

    Response of a Wounded Lover (Hosea 1-3)
    Sometimes we need to remember that the God who created our emotions, is a God of emotions. God rejoices and celebrates. God also is wounded by our actions and deeply saddened by our sin. Nowhere do we see this more dramatically portrayed than in the first three chapters of Hosea. In this section we will see God as a wounded lover who longs to restore and heal relationship.

    God is Serious (Intro to Minor Prophets)
    With this sermon we begin a new sermon series entitled, “God’s Heart...Our Heart.” We will be going through the last 12 books of the Old Testament, often known as “The Minor Prophets.” These books will reveal to us God’s heart for his people. We will also learn of God’s heart for justice, compassion, mercy, and our faithfulness to Him as we live out our daily lives.
