Sisterly Love

Passage: Amos 8:1-12,Colossians 1:15-28,Luke 10:38-42

Judgment and lamentation arise from the mouth of Amos, but Paul’s words to the Colossians brings forth the hope that in Christ we are reconciled to God. Even those who have done evil deeds are brought near to God and declared “holy and blameless.” What a marvelous gift! And Martha almost missed it! A loving God does not leave us to our own devices; He loves us enough to judge us, to speak the truth to us, and enable us to bear that truth and change.
