The Day of the Lord
Topic: Sermon Scripture: Joel 1:1–1:20
Joel announces unprecedented destruction but urges everyone to cry out to God. It is easy to slip into complacency about our lives and to presume that we are entitled to more. The prophecy of Joel is an alarm clock for all of our pretensions. Offering real hope in contrast to a thousand false assurances, Joel is a biblical remedy for spiritual sluggishness.
