Drawing near to God

In James 4:8, is one of my favorite passages in Scripture. He tells us to draw near to God and He will draw near to us. This passage has been a guiding principle in my life for years. Yet, at times, it seems more difficult than at other times. Continue reading “Drawing near to God”

Zephaniah. A matter of sin and hiding.

The book of Zephaniah is an interesting and challenging little book. It was written by Zephaniah somewhere between 640-620 B.C. Continue reading “Zephaniah. A matter of sin and hiding.”

Habakkuk: faith in crisis.

We don’t know a lot about the prophet apart from the information we can gain from his book. His name means “to wrestle” or “to cling” and speaks to the fact that he is literally wrestling with God for answers. Continue reading “Habakkuk: faith in crisis.”

Joel and the call to repentance.

The second book, in the so-called minor prophets, is the book of Joel. I hope to encourage to give a little more attention to this book and to strive to learn from it. It has a message that is not minor, a message that is desperately needed in today’s church. Continue reading “Joel and the call to repentance.”

Hosea: God wants something more.

The book of Hosea is the first of the 12 minor prophets and was likely written during the 8th century B.C. just before the Assyrian invades. His work and prophecies focused almost entirely on the northern kingdom of Israel during its final years of existence. His ministry lasted some 34 years and it is noteworthy that Hosea is the only prophet to live and preach solely to the Northern Kingdom. Continue reading “Hosea: God wants something more.”
