Judgment and Peace

Evening Service
Feb 5, 2023

How can God be in control when there is so much suffering in the world? In Nahum 1, we see that God often brings affliction upon his people in order to bring them back to himself. While God’s discipline is painful, it is the action of a loving God, who, like a surgeon, causes necessary pain in order to bring about healing. Nahum calls God’s people to remember the Lord’s promises, and to take comfort in both his judgment and peace. Although judgment upon God’s enemies is final, peace for God’s people has been secured through faith in Christ’s finished work on the cross.

Topics: Judgment, Wrath of God, Faithfulness of God

Nahum 1:9-15
