The last two sermons at church have been on Habakkuk. Last night at bible study we spent an hour or so getting into Habakkuk’s second complaint & the Lord’s answer. It’s been a while since I have gotten into the divided kingdom & the civil war that erupted after the life & times of Solomon. Not to mention the surrounding nations & political woman and manoeuvring.
While checking out a few maps this morning I came across this verse. "And I will wipe Jerusalem as one wipes a dish, wiping it and turning it upside down" (2 Kings 21:13).History & Theology in the kitchen. I get to be God like, handling dishes like God handles the nations. Surely the nations are like a drop in a bucket. Isa 40:15.
There is a big hole in the bucket of humanity. We may think we are the only ones washing the dishes, drying the dishes & turning the dishes over but God too is into making things clean & pure from our polluted mess. It’s why Jesus came to be among us.
