Micah: God‘s people

Ben Green | Micah 1.1-2.5 

Look! The Lord is coming from his dwelling-place;
he comes down and treads on the heights of the earth.
The mountains melt beneath him and the valleys split apart,
like wax before the fire, like water rushing down a slope.
All this is because of Jacob's transgression, because of the sins of the people of Israel...

Therefore, the Lord says:

‘I am planning disaster against this people,
from which you cannot save yourselves.
You will no longer walk proudly,
for it will be a time of calamity.

It's an uncompromising message of judgement, as Micah prophesies disaster as a punishment for Israel's sins. Yet, as Ben explains, it is a message with a purpose: to turn the people back to God, that they might be forgiven and find true life. The recording begins with Ben introducing the book (and our sermon series) as a whole, then Pat Clayton reads selected verses from the passage before Ben continues with this week's talk.

A fuller video recording of the Sunday service can be viewed on YouTube.
