DON’T BE CAUGHT NAPPING
TEXT: Amos 1:1-9
“And he said, The LORD will roar from Zion, and utter his voice from Jerusalem; and the habitations of the shepherds shall mourn, and the top of Carmel shall wither. Thus saith the LORD; For three transgressions of Damascus, and for four, I will not turn away the punishment thereof; because they have threshed Gilead with threshing instruments of iron.” – (Amos 1:2,3)
The Supreme God has declared judgment on the nations due to their ungodly lifestyles and behaviours. The Bible says “He, that being often reproved hardeneth his neck, shall suddenly be destroyed, and that without remedy” (Proverbs 29:1). God has warned of the final judgment that would come upon sinners. The declaration, “The LORD will roar from Zion”, portrays the indescribable degree of displeasure with which He will unleash His judgment on unrepentant nations and people on the final day.
Despite repeated warnings from God, men have remained adamant in sin, mistaking the longsuffering of God to mean that judgment will never come. But He is not willing that anyone should perish, hence the delay. God’s judgment is final and cannot be appealed. If you confess your sins now, He is faithful and just to forgive you of all your sins, and to cleanse you from all unrighteousness (1 John 1:9). There is urgent need to search the heart and ensure it is free from all forms of sin and ungodliness.
There is opportunity today to get saved. “For he saith, I have heard thee in a time accepted, and in the day of salvation have I succoured thee: behold, now is the accepted time; behold, now is the day of salvation” (2 Corinthians 6:2).
You can be saved today only if you open your heart and let Jesus in as your Redeemer and Saviour by confessing your sin, deciding to forsake them and praying for mercy and grace; then you shall surely be saved from the wrath to come.
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY:
Don’t be caught napping; run to Jesus to escape the looming wrath.
