God takes vengeance against His foes. He is jealous. Teaching about such attributes of God has not been fashionable for quite some time, but the Book of Nahum and its first eight verses are still part of the inspired Word and are still to be taught. Here are some points to think on as you prepare to teach Session 1 of your study of the Minor Prophets:
- God gave His life to save those who believe in Him.
- It is a good thing that He is jealous when those He saved forsake Him.
- When we forsake God, we do so invariably for something less than He.
- Nahum 1:2 teaches of His vengeance. Nahum 1:7 teaches of His loving care for those who take refuge in Him.
