Seek Me and Live (Amos 5:4-8)Pastor Joe Sanders, July 20, 2014
Part of the All In series, preached at a Sunday Morning service
What kind of life are you all in for? What are you giving your life, resources, hopes and dreams to in order to have joy and hope? We will be all in for something. We will give are all to someone. And its generally to the thing or person that seems to guarantee us the life we want most. God tells us that he has life for us, life that is incredible now and lasts forever. Life that brings us things what this world cannot take away or destroy. Sometimes, to experience the life that God has for us, we need to exercise “20 seconds of insane courage.” You could be one decision away from a totally different life- will you take the necessary steps to be all in for the life God has for you?

4For thus saith the LORD unto the house of Israel, Seek ye me, and ye shall live: 5But seek not Bethel, nor enter into Gilgal, and pass not to Beer-sheba: for Gilgal shall surely go into captivity, and Bethel shall come to nought. 6Seek the LORD, and ye shall live; lest he break out like fire in the house of Joseph, and devour it, and there be none to quench it in Bethel. 7Ye who turn judgment to wormwood, and leave off righteousness in the earth, 8Seek him that maketh the seven stars and Orion, and turneth the shadow of death into the morning, and maketh the day dark with night: that calleth for the waters of the sea, and poureth them out upon the face of the earth: The LORD is his name: (KJV)
