The Dark Before the Dawn (Advent 2017), Part 02 – Israel on Trial

 

Is God really a harsh judge, hovering in the heavens ready at any moment to accuse and punish?

In this episode, we find ourselves jurors as God indeed places Israel on trial. And yet, even as God makes his case (airtight, we might add), we hear not the rage of a king before a traitor, but the pain of a father who wants nothing but that his foolish children would recognize that they are chasing after the things that will profit them nothing.

It’s a painful look at human folly and the constancy of God’s love.

The sermon text is Jeremiah 2:4-13, 26-28 (NRSV)
