Amos 5:14-15

Amos 5:14-15

Seek good and not evil, That you may live; So the LORD God of hosts will be with you, As you have spoken. Hate evil, love good; Establish justice in the gate. It may be that the LORD God of hosts Will be gracious to the remnant of Joseph.
Amos 5:14-15

It may be hard to admit, but all of us at some time stray from the path on which Jesus is leading us. To get back on that path, we are called to confess our sins and repent. In these verses, Amos gives us the steps to repentance and they are simple and straightforward. Seek and love what is good and hate and do not seek what is evil.

The promise that comes with repentance is that our relationship with God will be solid, and also that no matter how evil your country, state, city, or neighborhood is around you; you can be a remnant that through repentance finds the grace and forgiveness of God.

So seek the Lord today and ask if there is anything you need to turn from.

In humble submission,

Pastor Gerard Deleeuw
