Spare Your People, Lord
Obadiah and Joel prophesied about the judgment of all the nations in the coming day of the Lord. Edom was singled out by Obadiah because of how they treated Israel. Who would be spared? What would happen to Edom? Or to you? In these last days, as we wait for the Day of the Lord, we should remember that God is gracious and compassionate, slow to anger and abounding in lovingkindness. He calls people to return to Him with their whole heart. Spare Your people, O Lord.
