13 Aug Minor Prophets, Major Message Pt. 1
In this teaching series, we dive into some of the most-often skipped books of the Bible – the prophetic books.
Throughout this series, we’ll look at these men who were assigned to call people back into relationship with God in a really unique way, what they had to say, and how it all came true and pointed to the greater story of God. We’ll also talk about how what they foretold applies to us today.
In part 1, we look at the writings of Amos and the message God gave him to convey to Israel. He kept calling them to return to him, to live justly and to pursue righteousness. But, the Israelites didn’t want to hear God’s voice (much like how we often respond to God). He had given them countless second chances and continued to be faithful when they were not. So, he was finally turning his face from them. But even still, there is a glimmer of hope at the end that Amos shares that we can cling to.
