Andrew Cornes, October 23, 2016
Part of the The Lion Has Roared series, preached at a Souls at 7

Sermon Outline Sunday 23 October 2016 Andrew Cornes

COMPLACENCY AND PRIDE: AMOS 6

This chapter is written to leaders – in society and in the church (1)
What was wrong with these leaders?

1. COMPLACENCY (1-7)
o Feeling secure (1)

o Comparing ourselves to other countries (or churches) (2)

o Saying things will go on being fine and living selfishly (3)

o Looking after No. 1 (4-6a)

o No deep sadness for the country’s spiritual ruin (6b)

God will judge leaders like that, in society and in the church (7)
2. PRIDE (8-14)
o Pride in our strength (8a)

o Pride in getting our way (12)

o Pride in our achievements (13)

God will judge a society or church like that (8b-11, 14)

Ache for Eastbourne’s spiritual state (6)

Act justly in humble dependence on God (8, 12)
