RE Verse reading–Amos 4:1-13 (day one) “There is no faithfulness, no love, no knowledge of God in the land” (vs 1) The place where our sin is most obvious is what we are not! The laws that we break are only part of God’s charge against us. Our failure to become like Him is even larger. Hosea 4:1-13 is a clear statement of this controversy from God against His people. The word “charge” in vs 1 means dispute or controvery. It is a legal word. A marriage ending up in court. Never good. In chapter 1-3, God compares their behavior to spiritual adultery. In chapter 4, He presents the most damning evidence of all. Faithfulness, love and knowledge of God are ABSENT in the land. Interesting. It is not what we have DONE that breaks God’s heart. The greatest sin is what we have NOT DONE, what we have NOT BECOME. “For all have sinned and fallen short.” Lord, make us hungry for righteousness!
