The Day of the Lord
Bible Basis: Zephaniah 1:4-6, 14-16, 2:3
Bible Truth: The Lord promised punishment to the Israelites because of their unfaithfulness and an opportunity for them to seek righteousness and save their relationship with Him.
Memory Verse: "Seek ye the Lord, all ye meek of the earth, which have wrought his judgment; seek righteousness, seek meekness: it may be ye shall be hid in the day of the Lord's anger." Zephaniah 2:3
Lesson AIM: That we will LEARN that on the Day of the Lord, God will punish those who have not repented; RECOGNIZE the relationship between righteous living and one's responsibility to maintain "the good" found in God's created order; and REPENT and reaffirm our faithfulness to God.
