Sermons on Amos
God expects a higher degree of obedience and moral living from his chosen people than from other nations, so he punishes his people more severely for their sins.
God’s own people cannot escape judgment when they forget Him, His teachings, and all He has done for them and practice injustice, immorality and false religion.
Our outrage about the sins of others is often God’s gracious warning to us.
The book of Amos is a reminder that God speaks even when we aren’t listening.
