“Let Justice Roll Down Like Waters”
Dr. Bob Setzer, preaching

Amos 5:21-24
Acts 9:13-18
John 4:1-6

The prophet Amos emphatically rejects a faith based in worship alone (5:21-23). Instead, he insists that a living faith issues in personal “righteousness” and “justice” for all (5:24). What does such a faith look like and live like in our place and time?

Deuteronomy 30:15-20
1 Corinthians 3:1-9
Matthew 5:21-26

Jesus warns that unrestrained anger makes one “liable to judgment” (Mt. 5:21). Unless such anger is examined, tested, and winnowed, it can destroy relationships and community. Thankfully, Jesus teaches us what to do when we’re “mad as hell.”
