Zephaniah predicts the coming day of the Lord – a time of great judgment.
- Judgment for Sin – Most of Zephaniah deals with God’s judgment. The reason for this judgment is clear – “because they have sinned against the Lord” (1:17). This includes idolatry (1:4-6), boasting (2:8), and pride (2:10, 15). God hates sin and will judge. Sin is serious. Are you taking sin seriously in your life?
- Seek! – Zephaniah calls God’s people to seek the Lord, to seek righteousness, and to seek humility. Are you seeking these things? In what ways?
