When God Feels Like an Enemy | Lamentations 2:1-22
January 30, 2022
Pastor Joshua Lim
In a surprising twist, it is revealed that God is behind the destruction of Jerusalem. It is the Lord who opposes His own people in their sin. With that, we are confronted with a very difficult conundrum: What do we do when God feels like an enemy? Well, in that situation, there are really only two options: you can either fight or you can surrender. Lamentations calls us to surrender - to turn to the Lord, to honestly confess, and to humbly submit. And in light of the Gospel, we can confidently surrender knowing that God treated His own Son like an enemy so that we who were his actual enemies would now be brought in as his own sons and daughters. We can joyfully surrender our lives to God.
