On the surface, the book of Amos doesn’t sound like a happy formula for the good life. However, every condemnation he gives serves as an invitation, a call for us to “seek God and live” (Amos 5:4). Amos’ prophesy prompts us to care for others—displaying true righteousness, not just religious ritual—and the result will change you and those around you. You’ll discover Amos is promoting the God life, and the God life is the good life!
Join me for this 8-session video-based study of the book of Amos, and together we’ll unearth the gems hidden within one of the most overlooked books in the Bible. You’ll be assured of God’s presence, grow deeper in faith, and find renewed hope that life is good … even when it’s not.
Today the microphone has been flipped around in the podcast closet. Instead of me asking the questions and interviewing a special guest, I’m going to be the one who’s interviewed. Doesn’t that sound fun?
Is it just me, or are you sometimes not quite sure how to pray? Well, I found something in the ancient Old Testament book of Amos that gives a great framework for how to pray, and you are going to love it.
Today you’ll learn three ways to pray that will boost your confidence, draw you closer to God, and guarantee that God hears you. Thankfully, the Holy Spirit helps us in our weakness when it comes to praying as we ought. And, since Jesus is interceding for us at the right hand of the Father (Romans 8:34), we, like Amos, can intercede for others.
Today we’re going to talk about cows. Yes, cows! And more specifically, today you’ll learn how Scripture uses cows to teach us about humility! Are you ready for this?
You’ll appreciate this conversation about humility because it’s a spiritual superpower that we just don’t talk about enough. And often it’s because we don’t understand it.
We may think if we’re humble, then we’ll be walked on or overlooked. But humility is not just an attribute or an attitude, it’s an action—a powerful and profound force that can change you and the world around you.
I’m inviting you into my good life with another one of my Good Life episodes.
By the way, if you didn’t hear me singing with Lionel Richie on one of the past Good Life episodes, be sure to check that out too!
These Good Life episodes are my way of celebrating the release of my new Bible study, Amos: An Invitation to the Good Life (Lifeway, August 15, 2022). And this time, I thought I’d take you on an epic road trip with my family.
