Stefan Johnson 10-23-2022 // Lamentations 1, The God Who Judges
Lamentations is one of the least preached books. And to be honest, it is a depressing book. Lamentations deals with the Lord's treatment of Judah, specifically, Jerusalem, for her continued rebellion to Himself and His laws. And following an 18 month siege of the city by Babylon, Jerusalem is devastated beyond belief.
But the lessons of Lamentations are just as relevant for us today as they were during the time the events of this book took place. First, we must come to grips that our sin deserves judgment, and the position in which Jerusalem finds itself is the direct judgment of God. But we also see that God is righteous in His judgments and we learn what happens when God's people cry out in repentance.
Thank you for listening to today's lesson. May you be blessed and encouraged through the teaching of God's Word.
