“The Divine Comedy”

Cameron Sapaugh, Theology Student – Habakkuk 1-3

Cameron Sapaugh leads Redemption Bible Church in a look at Habakkuk 1-3. We see the rising threat of the Babylonian war machine threatening Judah, one of the last places left unconquered in the region. God said he would use the Babylonians as His tool, but they had become convinced of their own power and did not believe they needed to rely on God. God punishes Babylon. The story here reminds us that we must never lose sight of our faith in God. In spite of any challenges we may face or any successes we may achieve, we must still exalt the Lord as it is in His strength alone that we are able to grow. The alternative is to live by our pride and faith in our own strength, which will ultimately lead to ruin; like the Babylonians.
