Amos - "The First Reformer"
At DPC, we start our next sermon series on September 7. As you see in the graphic above, we're headed back to the Old Testament for a season, with a nine-sermon series through the prophet Amos.
"The lion has roared—who will not fear? The Lord God has spoken." Amos 3.8
Amos has been called "The First Reformer," and if you read through his book, you'll see why. He lived in a world of evil and injustice... exactly like you and I do. And he knew that this mattered greatly to the Lord God.
But, for justice to roll down like waters and righteousness like an ever-flowing stream (Amos 5.24) there will be Hell to pay.
The question is—who will pay it?
