The Heart of the Matter: A Matter of the Heart

Habakkuk 2:18-20 teaches us that the human heart is a very efficient idol factory. If we do not worship the One True God, we will create other things to worship. Those thing will be extensions of us. As God finishes the final refrain of His fight song, He reveals two things about mankind and idols: (1) Dead hearts have dead ears and seek after dead things to worship; and, (2) living hearts have ears open to hearing God’s revelation.


Poetic Justice: God’s Fight Song

In this passage, God sings a fight song to taunt his enemies, claiming victory before the opposing team even takes the field. We hear the climax of God’s script for the universe – God is glorified. He is glorified in two ways: 1) by His judgment upon the puffed up (2:5-13, 15-17); and, 2) by His covenant loyalty to His people (2:14).


The Nature of Faith

Habakkuk 2:1-4 teaches us that faith and righteousness before God are permanently welded together. What we will learn today by unpacking 2:4 is: (1) there are two kinds of believers; and, (2) the New Testament give us three contexts in which to examine the nature of faith.


The Object of Faith

Habakkuk 2:1-4 teaches us a principle that is repeated three times in the New Testament, “the just shall live by his faith.” Faith demands an object. Today we will review what Habakkuk knew about the object of his faith: (1) God and his promises are eternal: and, (2) God and his promises are good.
