Why do bad things happen? Does God allow tragedies to happen? Is God in control? This sermon seeks to analyze Amos 3:1-8, where God rebukes Israel for their wickedness and adulterous ways. God affirms that He is in complete control, and regardless of life's experiences and tragedies, He allows all things for his good purposes.
Isaiah was sent to tell them not only what their bad choices had brought about but also to share with them the divine hope that was present in their exile. Was it only their land and the temple that gave them their spiritual identities? Who would God be to them in exile? The people had to ask difficult questions about their covenant with God, and the results of this difficult season of exile are beautiful examples of God’s power to restore His people. This power to make broken things beautiful remains true for us today.
