The major prophets' messages spoke of judgment, restoration, and hope. They are rooted in God's desire for His people to flourish. God wants His people to live in peace. He wants us to prosper and to be free from sin and its consequences. He also wants us to experience His love and forgiveness.
Here are some specific ways that God wants His people to flourish:
God's desire for our flourishing is not just for our own benefit. He wants us to flourish so that we can be a blessing to others. When we are flourishing, we are more able to love, serve, and reach out to those around us.
Let's commit ourselves to live in a way that pleases God and that brings Him glory. Let's allow Him to work in our lives and to bring about His purposes. Let's flourish for His name's sake and glory!
