1 Lectureship Soup A Look back at the 2011 Freed Hardeman University Lectureship

2 Introductory Thoughts A wonderful week full of messages to be gleaned from the Minor Prophets Series Topics The Prophets Proclaim The Prophets Call The Prophets at a Glance Life Application - Unforgettable Images And Many Others Tonight I want to summarize the series "The Prophets Call"

3 The Prophets Call To Seek the Lord - Hosea 10:11-15 To Please the Lord - Malachi 3:3-5 To Rejoice in the Lord - Zechariah 9:9 To Wait for the Lord - Zephaniah 3:8-9

4 The Prophets Call To Seek the Lord - Hosea 10:11-15 The mission of Hosea was to have the people come to a genuine knowledge of God Agricultural metaphors are used in this text A great lesson on the law of sowing and reaping Sowing righteousness and seeking the Lord are closely related Participation in either act begins with our hearts and minds

5 The Prophets Call To Please the Lord - Malachi 3:3-5 Consider how we seek to please others In our text the people of God have begun to worship God with routine and meaningless worship When we worship to please ourselves God would rather close the doors than to accept our worship The same fire that purifies the gold and silver is the same fire that hardens the clay

6 The Prophets Call To Rejoice in the Lord - Zechariah 9:9 It seems that there is not much to rejoice about these days How then do we rejoice? Allow me to offer 4 suggestions Recognize the true source of joy Recognize the obstacle lies in joy's way Recognize the true expression of joy Recognize our power over our own joy

7 The Prophets Call To Wait for the Lord - Zephaniah 3:8-9 Impatience in our relationship with God leads to several avenues of spiritual distress We cease to pray We become missing from worship We no longer know the Word of God We seek relationships everywhere, but with God The disappointments of this life cause us to wait for the Lord

8 Concluding Thoughts Until… We seek the Lord We please the Lord We rejoice in the Lord We wait for the Lord We can never truly come to the Lord
