Seek the Lord and Live

Seek the Lord and Live

Passage: Amos 5:1-17

Speaker: Pastor Stephen Palm

Series: Amos-God’s Roar for Justice and Mercy

During the reign of Jeroboam I, Israel abandoned the LORD and set up false idols in Bethel and Dan. All of Israel’s kings continued this practice, including Jeroboam’s namesake, the current king. In seeking evil gods, Israel became morally and spiritually bankrupt. But when God sent prophets to rebuke them, they despised the messengers and loathed the message to seek the LORD and live. Do we honor God’s message and messengers, or do we despise the word of the LORD? What are the consequences of our spiritual deafness? Are we seeking God and seeking Jesus' grace?
