God Delights in His People -

Here’s what happens…

The prophet Zephaniah brings a message of God’s Justice and Hope for the Israelites (specifically the Southern Kingdom) during the time of Josiah’s reign (see 2 Kings 22-23). Chapter 1 announces the coming day of wrath and gloom; Chapter 2 contains an urgent call to repentance; and Chapter 3 looks beyond judgement to the time of restoration. This message is still relevant for us today as we are called to repent and put our hope God for the future. 

  • What qualities of God does Zephaniah hold up as a standard for the people? How well have they modelled these qualities and held to this standard?
  • What will be the cause for the people’s rejoicing?
  • Which of God's actions do you believe would make the people most glad?
  • What does this passage tell us about God? Discipleship?
  • What do you think this passage saying to you in your current circumstances? What are you going to do about it?
