6. Jehoram: King of Consequences

Related Media
This is the sixth audio message for the Heroes & Villains series.

Abstract


A great deal of confusion surrounds the topic of consequences. Many mistakenly assume that consequences are inherently negative (some are, some aren’t). Others falsely believe that anything negative that may happen to us is a direct consequence of sin (some consequences result from sins, others don’t). Still others incorrectly think that any negative consequences disappear after we’ve been forgiven (forgiveness does not erase all consequences). The life of Jehoram teaches us that God is ultimately in control of every consequence we face. Furthermore, the consequences in our lives are designed to teach us things. If we are wise we will learn from them; if we are foolish we will likely remain under them—or see them again real soon.
