The Book of Amos

The Sunday morning lesson from March 8, 2020

The Book of Amos (Amos 5:18-25)

Phillip Stuckey, March 8, 2020
Part of the Overviews of The Minor Prophets series, preached at a Sunday Morning service

Religious ritualism and hypocrisy have often been a problem with God’s people (Matt. 23:1-3). It can be easy to become so focused on something that one neglects the “weightier matters” of God’s law (Matt. 23:23). The book of Amos reaches out across the years and calls us back to a true relationship with God and others.

Amos 5:18–25 (Listen)

18   Woe to you who desire the day of the LORD!
    Why would you have the day of the LORD?
  It is darkness, and not light,
19     as if a man fled from a lion,
    and a bear met him,
  or went into the house and leaned his hand against the wall,
    and a serpent bit him.
20   Is not the day of the LORD darkness, and not light,
    and gloom with no brightness in it?
21   “I hate, I despise your feasts,
    and I take no delight in your solemn assemblies.
22   Even though you offer me your burnt offerings and grain offerings,
    I will not accept them;
  and the peace offerings of your fattened animals,
    I will not look upon them.
23   Take away from me the noise of your songs;
    to the melody of your harps I will not listen.
24   But let justice roll down like waters,
    and righteousness like an ever-flowing stream.

25 “Did you bring to me sacrifices and offerings during the forty years in the wilderness, O house of Israel?
