Word Wednesday .::27

Word Wednesday is posted every Wednesday. Each week I post a scripture that I've read that week that has spoken to me in a fresh way. I believe that if we read God's Word every day, He will give us at least one scripture every week that will impact us. Sharing Scripture with each other is like iron sharpening iron. Leave a comment and share a scripture that has impacted you this week.

Here's the scripture that stuck this week:

Amos 5:21-24 ESV

21 “I hate, I despise your feasts,
and I take no delight in your solemn assemblies.

22
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.

23
Take away from me the noise of your songs;
to the melody of your harps I will not listen.

24
But let justice roll down like waters,
and righteousness like an ever-flowing stream.

This one stuck out, because I've been enjoying a new CD called "Limbs and Branches" by Jon Foreman. There's a song called "Instead of a Show", which is taken from this scripture. Worship is such a broad subject and a multi-dimensional act, and it seems that the church sometimes acts as if it only should happen in a church building on Sunday, and though that happens, it's got to be more. It's got to be a 24-7, genuine lifestyle with the sole purpose of pleasing God....not a show.

What's your Word?
