Sermons on Habakkuk
Preacher: John Rubens. Passage: Habakkuk 3 v18. Habakkuk lived in a time where God's laws were being rejected. We experience such today. We see the prophet's anticipation and his response before God.
Celebrating life in the gospel.
The truth of the matter is that people are really nervous and anxious with everything that is going on around us. The economy is still struggling; unemployment is still up; our president and legislators have not solved the fiscal cliff problem yet; and worst of all, our society keeps going downhill spiritually and morally. With all these, it is difficult to be optimistic about 2013. In fact, it seems to be easier to accept that we are heading towards tougher times. On this context, I feel it is appropriate to end this year with a challenge regarding taking the road to faith. You see, the reality is that when we are facing tough times, we only have two options – we either take the road of fear or the road of faith. I hope that at the end of the day we will be convinced that the road of faith is always the best.
How should we respond when the circumstances of life press in on us? The book of Habakkuk teaches us that an ultra clear vision of God will help us navigate life's greatest trials. Because God is present, sovereign, good, and powerful, we can rise above the circumstances.
