Read it!: Amos 1
For three sins of Damascus, even for four,
I will not turn back my wrath…
(vs 3 and repeated)
Think it through:
Amos starts out with a bang, doesn’t he? He lets us know that God does get tired of our repeated sin.
Because of Christ’s sacrifice, God has promised to forgive us over and over, but that doesn’t give us the freedom to ignore his laws and commands. He does get frustrated and angry with us when we do wrong, particularly when we know better.
