Welcome to First Baptist Church of Okemos' webpage for Unit 17 Session 1 of The Gospel Project for Kids. In this session, we will delve deep into the life of Obadiah the Prophet and explore his teachings. Join Northbridge Church as we embark on this spiritual journey and uncover the significance of Obadiah in the Bible.
Who was Obadiah?
Obadiah was a prophet in the Old Testament who authored the book of Obadiah. Despite being one of the minor prophets, his message carries immense importance and offers valuable lessons for believers today. His name, which means "servant of Yahweh," reflects his deep devotion to God.
The Book of Obadiah
The book of Obadiah contains a powerful prophecy against Edom, a neighboring nation of Israel. Obadiah warns Edom of their impending destruction due to their arrogance, pride, and mistreatment of Israel. Through this prophecy, Obadiah emphasizes that God is just and will hold nations accountable for their actions.
Although Obadiah's message was specifically directed towards Edom, his teachings hold important lessons for us today. We can draw parallels between Edom's pride and the destructive forces of pride in our own lives. Obadiah's call for justice and mercy reminds us of the values we should uphold as followers of Christ.
Exploring Obadiah's Teachings
During this session, the dedicated team at Northbridge Church will guide you through an in-depth study of Obadiah's teachings. You will have the opportunity to delve into the historical and cultural context, as well as the theological significance of Obadiah's message.
The Sovereignty of God
One of the key themes in Obadiah's prophecy is the sovereignty of God. Through his words, he emphasizes that God is in control of all nations and their destinies. This serves as a reminder to us that, regardless of the circumstances, we can place our trust in God's unchanging and faithful nature.
God's Justice and Mercy
Obadiah's prophecy highlights the principles of justice and mercy. He condemns Edom for their pride and mistreatment of others, reminding us of the importance of treating one another with fairness, compassion, and respect. As we delve into Obadiah's teachings, we will reflect upon how we can live out these principles in our own lives.
