Sermon: Proper 27A (OT)

9 November AD 2014
Pentecost 22

Theme: Desiring the Day of the Lord

Christ Crucified Summary: “Be careful what you ask for, you might just get it,” warns the secular proverb. Amos warned Israel to stop asking for the Day of the Lord until they realized what that Day means to unrepentant sinners.

Without faith in Christ and His blood-bought forgiveness, we would also face everlasting darkness and eternal death. Thanks be to God that His Son faced the dark of judgment on the cross that we might live in God’s light.

Text: Woe to you who desire the day of the Lord! Why would you have the day of the Lord? It is darkness, and not light, as if a man fled from a lion, and a bear met him, or went into the house and leaned his hand against the wall, and a serpent bit him. Is not the day of the Lord darkness, and not light, and gloom with no brightness in it?

“I hate, I despise your feasts, and I take no delight in your solemn assemblies. Even though you offer me your burnt offerings and grain offerings, I will not accept them; and the peace offerings of your fattened animals, I will not look upon them. Take away from me the noise of your songs; to the melody of your harps I will not listen.

“But let justice roll down like waters, and righteousness like an ever-flowing stream.” Amos 5:18-24
