Before That Day
Passage: Zephaniah 2:1–3:8
In our second look at Zephaniah, we will see another scathing description of "the day of the anger of the Lord." It is a sobering thing to know that God will move profoundly against boasting, taunting, rebellion, and the refusal to listen. Yet, the call of the prophet is to seek the Lord before that day comes. In the midst of all of this, God promises to preserve his remnant, which is a small group of his people who will remain faithful to him.
