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!
In God’s amazing love to his people, he is utterly faithful. And when his people return to him, he faithfully and freely forgives them and restores them to new life and new relationships.
The more we empty ourselves to God, the more He fills us. Worship is a continuous offering to God of all that we have and all that we are. It is giving ourselves utterly and completely to God, and being willing for him to direct our lives however he sees fit.
