Hi, God’s word for me today is in Amos 4:13 which says:
“13 He who forms the mountains,
who creates the wind,
and who reveals his thoughts to mankind,
who turns dawn to darkness,
and treads on the heights of the earth —
the Lord God Almighty is his name.
In this passage Amos tells us that Israel had been punished by the Lord, and yet they still hadn’t repented. Then in the end of the passage (verse 13) Amos says that the Lord is the one who had formed the mountains and created the winds. He had revealed His thoughts to mankind. Amos is glorifying God here. Verse 13 talks about how the Lord forms the mountains, I just got back from Hurricane ridge and an amazing view of the mountains here is Washington so it was amazing that I read how the Lord forms the mountains.
The Lord is so amazing that He created all the mountains. We can only gawk at His glory. But this amazing God hates sin and we were sinners. We were going to die with our sins on us, we needed a perfect sacrifice if we were going to be saved, but we couldn’t ever find a perfect sacrifice. But then an amazing thing happened! Jesus, the one who created everything, came down from heaven and became a sacrifice for us! Our glorious and amazing God came down from heaven and died for us so that we could live.
Jesus came and died for us so that we could live. We did not deserve to be saved from our sins, especially from a perfect God who came down and died as our sacrifice! If you have not trusted in Jesus as your only savior then why don’t you trust in Him now and live? Jesus died for us on the cross so that we could live, why don’t you trust in Him and you will be saved!
We should praise God for what He has done! We should give Him the glory for everything! Amos glorified God, He is the one who created the mountains and the wind and everything! Evolutionists say that over millions of years the earth evolved into a perfect place for life to live! Wrong! The Lord created the earth, and He died for us on the cross! He is absolutely amazing, He created the universe, the amazing universe and He actually loved us so much to die for us!
Thank You Jesus for dying for us on the cross!
