An Old Testament Saint For Advent ~ Zephaniah

Saint and Prophet Zephaniah

Although the Old Testament prophet, Zephaniah, has some frightening words and prophecies in the first few chapters of his book, his ultimate message is hope in the Lord.  He actually offers some verses that are worth copying down and keeping in your pocket - just to pull out for a bit of inspiration now and then. For example ...

The LORD, your God, is in your midst, a mighty savior,
Who will rejoice over you with gladness, and renew you in His love,
Who will sing joyfully because of you.
- Zephaniah 3:17
