One Book: Zephaniah

Zephaniah: When God Cleans House

For many of us, spring triggers a time to evaluate our stuff. We get to a point when the clutter we’ve accumulated starts to drive us crazy. Then, to our relief, the day finally comes when we take inventory, box up the junk, and send it away for good! Isn’t is such a great feeling when our junk is finally dealt with?!

In a similar way, Zephaniah tells of a day when the Lord will visit the earth and sweep His house clean (Zeph. 1:2). It’s a day when God will do away with all the junk in His world – sin, rebellion, and all the other things that dishonor God and threaten His people. Won’t that be a great day?!
