The Lord Will Stretch Out His Hand (Zephaniah 2:4-15)


The world is filled with injustices great and small; that much is given. The question for Christians is, What do we do about them? It seems clear from the Bible that followers of Jesus have a responsibility to right the wrongs in our own sphere of influence; as it says in James 2:26, “faith without works is dead.” But what about the injustices that are beyond our control? The ones that we can’t do anything about? What do we do about those? Part of the Bible’s answer to this important question is found right here in Zephaniah chapter 2. In this sermon, we focus on the Lord’s righteous judgment and its implications for those who trust in Him.
