The judgment of God is the natural result of our disobedience to Him. The people of Joel’s day experienced a devastating invasion of locusts as a sign of God’s judgment for their sin and disobedience. Joel also looks into our future and sees the time of the Great Tribulation as a sign of God’s judgment for a future generation. But in the midst of God’s judgment for our sin is His mercy to forgive us of our sins. Joel writes about how compassionate, merciful, and loving God is, and that anyone who calls upon the name of the Lord shall be saved. Are you saved? Do you know what it means to have your sins forgiven and to be in a relationship with Jesus? Pastor Gary unpacks all that in today’s message from the book of Joel.
