The Always King
From Series: "The Lion Roars"
Amos pictures God as a lion, roaring God's judgment from Mt. Zion. We don't like to think of God as a judge. But the biblical picture of God as judge is founded in God's love as our Father in Heaven. We can hear God's judgment as words as a firm love calling us to be whole.

Think about Sunday. The day we all gather to worship. In a room full of brothers and sisters, full of people who are part of God’s people, God’s kingdom.
And in addition to those who’re followers, many are curious. Who are trying to figure out this religion stuff, checking out Christianity, trying to decide if Jesus is worth all the hype. Some of us coming having had particularly excellent weeks. Some of us are in the midst of the worst times of our lives. A lot of us are just having average, normal weeks. All of us have come here looking for something. We want to be filled.
Maybe you’ve come for encouragement and inspiration. Maybe you’ve come for forgiveness or healing. Maybe you’re here for answers and certainty. Maybe you’re here out of obligation or to make someone happy. Whatever you’re looking for, if you’re like most of us, you’re here to get something. We look to Sunday to energize our week. We come for music or prayer or teaching or fellowship and that fills us up so we can go back out into the week.
