Missing – (6-04-2017)

“MISSING!”

START A SEARCH TO RETURN MISSING VIRTUES TO THE CHURCH.

1- REVERENCE ZEPHANIAH 3:1-4

NOTHING IS SEPARATED.

JUDAH WAS TIED UP IN “NOT”S. 3:2.

THEY HAD SUNK TO IDOLATRY AND ASTROLOGY. (1:4-5)

THEY WERE NOT DIFFERENT THAN PEOPLE WHO NEVER KNEW GOD. (Eph. 5:3)

NOTHING IS SACRED. 3:4

2- SHAME ZEPHANIAH 3:5-6

GOD IS PERFECT. 3:5

SINNERS ARE PROUD. 3:5-6

SHAME HAS A PURPOSE. (II Cor. 7:9-11)

3- DISCERNMENT ZEPHANIAH 3:7

GOD EXPECTS DISCERNMENT.

HE TEACHES US THROUGH “INSTRUCTION” (THE EASY WAY) AND “PUNISHMENT” (THE

EXPERIENCE ROUTE).

WE HAVE EXISTENTIALISM.

THE UNSTATED UNDERSTANDING IS GONE.

LOOK WHAT’S MISSING! THEY’VE DISAPPEARED!

IT’S TIME TO SEND OUT A SEARCH PARTY.

START WITH YOURSELF.

SPREAD IT TO OTHERS.
