Addressing self-serving, status-seeking women and hypocrites who merely played at religion, Amos warned God’s people that they were perilously close to reaching the point of no return. Alistair Begg urges us to repent while there is still time, for all will one day face God, either for punishment or for blessing. God is sovereignly in control of the universe and He will use whatever means necessary to turn His people back to Himself, but His patience is not endless.
1“Hear this word, you cows of Bashan,
who are on the mountain of Samaria,
who oppress the poor, who crush the needy,
who say to your husbands, ‘Bring, that we may drink!’
