Do I have to get better?

RE Verse reading–Amos 4:1-5, 5:1-24 (day six)  “I hate, I despise your religious feasts. . .let justice roll on like a river, righteousness like a never-ending stream!” (vs 21, 24)  It is a question that I ask myself occasionally.  Not often enough probably.  I am aware of not being all that God made me to be.  Capable of intense fellowship with Him.  Created to be conformed to His image in every aspect of my life and thought.  I must seek Him!  (Matthew 6:33)  It won’t happen by osmosis or the mere passage of time.  I cannot be content just to go to church.  Jesus hates that kind of church–a place where “not right” people feel safe and loved without challenge or change.  It becomes a den of thieves.  (Luke 19:46) ” Let justice roll on like a river” says Amos expressing a completely different vision of what the outcome of worship should be.  Yes!  If it is Jesus I want, I have to get better!
