If God cares enough to call you to His work and give you His gifts, then He also cares enough to correct and confront you when you’re headed in the wrong direction.
As Christians, we are actually people of the future. With our future absolutely guaranteed. Obadiah got it right. He said to the Edomites, you can laugh. You can mock. But God’s Kingdom is going to stand forever.
Amos was faithful to deliver the message that God gave him. Amos’ message never changed. He faithfully delivered it despite the personal opposition he faced.
Consider the text today as God’s warning to anyone who’s ‘playing Church!’ I ought to just finish right there with that one statement, for the text says it all. Amos, here, is dealing with those who like to try to fool people by acting holy.
God is calling you to serve Him. God has a plan for your life and you can do anything when you allow Christ to work his will through you.
The message is wake up, get ready and prepare! Sitting around doing nothing is not an option!
