“The Lord Is My Portion”
In a couple of weeks our plan is to start a new series on the letter of James, and I’m looking forward to working through this immensely practical book that touches on so much of the Christian life. This week, however, we’ll turn our attention to a single message on Lamentations 3. This is one of the more well-known chapters in the Old Testament in which Jeremiah laments the destruction of Jerusalem at the hands of the Babylonians.
Of course this destruction was brought about by God as a punishment for Israel’s sin and disobedience, but amidst the despair and hopelessness of Jeremiah’s lament, Lamentations 3 gives us one of the clearest pictures of God’s grace, mercy, and faithfulness in all the Scriptures. Take some time to read Lamentations 3 a few times before Sunday. Pray for God to chasten, encourage, and make us more like Christ. Looking forward to see you this Lord’s Day!
Grace and peace,
