Lamentations 4

Lamentation - Hope in the Darkness

Bible Text: Lamentations 4:1-22 |

Series:

Old Testament Professor, Gordon McConville writes, "An important part of God's intention in bringing the state of Judah to an end was to show that he himself was the only proper object of the people's trust.

Lamentations stands as a witness against false trust in any institution, including a church, for salvation." No poem in the collection reflects that more than the poem in chapter 4. In this sermon we look at the issue of trust, the consequences of misplacing it, and the reason why our relationship with God alone should be our ultimate trust relationship in life.

In some ways the concept of hope is the very foundation upon which our continuing existence, as human beings, is based. Here, in the middle of the book of Lamentations we find a reason to hope in the midst of desolation and darkness, a reason to lift our eyes above the despair.

Lamentations 2

Lamentation - Hope in the Darkness

Bible Text: Lamentations 2:1-22 |

Series:

Speaking about "the Wrath of God" is one of those uncomfortable subjects that few people like to do. The problem is that the more you read your Bible the more you see the theme coming up, particularly in the Old Testament. As we continue our series in Lamentations we find ourselves, in chapter 2, staring into the face of God's wrath. How should we understand it? How do we make sense of the devastation of Jerusalem at God's hand? Is the wrath of God an inconvenient doctrine that Christians ought to throw out, or could it potentially help us to make sense of evil and suffering in our world?

Lamentation - Hope in the Darkness

Bible Text: Lamentations 1:1-22 |

Series:

Sin is generally a difficult issue to talk about in our culture – not primarily because our culture doesn't believe in sin – actually more because our culture can't agree on the definitions and boundaries of sin. In this study on the first chapter of Lamentations we look at how the Bible conceives of sin and try and make sense of it's definitions within a culture that is largely amoral and pluralistic.
