A timeless reminder to ‘get real’ about ourselves and God
The people of Israel were susceptible to distraction, self-centredness, forgetfulness and apathy. Despite the many times that God had stepped in and rescued them, they regularly took their eyes off God so God sent Joel to proclaim His message loud and clear: ‘turn back to God or there will be consequences.’
These seven insightful sessions remind us of how:
- Calamities and earthly disasters can refocus our attention on God
- Our need to repent and return to God is one that is ongoing
- God can transform situations that are entirely out of our hands
Icebreakers, Bible readings, eye openers, discussion starters, personal application make this a rich resource for group or individual study.
