References: Amos 7Amos was not a learned man; he was a shepherd from a small town. He was not an innovator; he simply reminded people of facts they already knew. The only remarkable thing about Amos was how unremarkable he was. Yet God used Amos to remind His people that religious profession and religious procession are irrelevant and repulsive to Him unless they are accompanied by evidence of His grace. As 21st century Christians, we need to realize that God is saying the same thing to us. The church today is consumed with tales of experience yet it often denies the truths of biblical doctrine. It has bought into psychology but finds occasion to bow out of theology. It has reduced biblical obligations to personal options. It is preoccupied with growth but has lost sight of the God who makes things grow.... In this series Alistair Begg explains why he believes today's church desperately needs to hear again the prophetic words of Amos and how we might learn to bring our lifestyles into line with that which comes from our lips.
I’M TOO BUSY!” We’ve all heard it. We’ve all said it. All too often, busyness gets the best of us.
Just one look at our jam-packed schedules tells us how hard it can be to strike a well-reasoned balance between doing nothing and doing it all.
That’s why author and pastor Kevin DeYoung addresses the busyness problem head on in his newest book, Crazy Busy - and not with the typical arsenal of time management tips, but rather with the biblical tools we need to get to the source of the issue and pull the problem out by the roots. Highly and super short, Crazy Busy helps put an end to “busyness as usual.”
