Amos 8:12 And they shall wander from sea to sea, and from the north even to the east, They shall run to and fro to seek the word of the LORD, and shall not find it.
God’s people had ignored His Word for a long time. Then God sent a famine in the land. They would not hear His Word. They went looking for His Word. They wanted to know what God said but couldn’t find it.
Today in our country and world there is a great lack of the Word of God. The pulpit has turned into a political podium, a pop psychology platform, a rostrum for rallying the troops to an agenda, anything but a place where God’s Word is preached.
People are hungry to hear the Word of God. They love it when it is preached simply and straight. They love it when they can see that it is coming directly from the Word of God.
The Word of God should be our authority. The people should clearly see that all we are doing is saying what the Bible says, the way the Bible says, to the people God wants it said to.
There is a hunger for the Word of God. Let’s give it to them in Sunday School, in discipleship, in the preaching services, in our conversations, on a regular, every day basis!
