Grace in the Midst of Ruins – Amos 9. RBT Notes, 10th June

1.    God sees everything and everyone, and will bring all to judgement (vv.1-6). How do you sometimes forget this, and how does that show in your life?

2.    What warnings does God have for complacent Israel (vv.7-10)? Is there any grace here for them?

3.   Read the amazing (and unexpected) promise of vv.11-15 alongside Acts 15.12-18. How then is it ultimately fulfilled?

 

A Prayer to Pray

Father, You dwell with the contrite. In fact, You raise them up, just as You raised Your people from the ruins of their sin through Christ. May Amos’s message live in my heart, to make me humble, to guard against greed and hypocrisy, and to look to You always, the God of hope. Amen.
