This Sunday at 9:30am, we will be looking at the shortest (in the Old Testament) and least read book (according to biblegateway.com) in the entire Bible...the book of Obadiah.
Why would I preach on such a short and obscure book of the Bible? I think Paul said it best in Romans, where he wrote the following:
"Such things were written in the Scriptures long ago to teach us. And the Scriptures give us hope and encouragement as we wait patiently for God's promises to be fulfilled." Romans 15:4
As we will see on Sunday, the book of Odadiah was given to restore Israel's faith in God, who came to the defense of a ravaged nation...families who had lost everything...in order to rescue, restore and return them to a nation filled with hope for a rich and satisfying future. For us, the book of Obadiah reminds us that God is sovereign. That God is watching and that nothing happens outside of his knowledge and plan. Our comfort is found in knowing that God will make all things right in the end!
Take some time today to read Psalm 121 and allow the words of the Psalmist to provide you with hope for tomorrow.
