This past Sunday, we continued our Minor Prophet series with the book of Amos. Amos was a shepherd and farmer that God called from the deserts of Judea to the affluent city of Samaria with a message of truth, of righteousness, of justice, and of judgment.
Even though it was written over 2000 years ago, the message is still very relevant today, as there is still much corruption, oppression, injustice, self-indulgence, and hypocrisy that goes on in our world today. This books speaks to those things and warns us that God will judge it all.
The good news is that those who repent and turn from these sins will find forgiveness and mercy. And for those who find themselves oppressed and mistreated, they can know that God will deliver them and judge their oppressors.
