Amos 8:11 – “The days are coming,” declares the Sovereign LORD, “when I will send a famine through the land – not a famine of food or a thirst for water, but a famine of hearing the words of the LORD.” In this study, we will focus on the famine of hearing the word of God, and we will apply it to our lives using a favourite device of the prophets – imagery.
James 1:22 – Do not merely listen to the word, and so deceive yourselves. Do what it says. In this study we will examine James’ concept a true Christian, and how we cannot be satisfied with merely listening, but we must also apply what we know in good works.
Job 42:5 – My ears had heard of you but now my eyes have seen you. In this study we will examine the significance and difference to hearing of God versus ‘seeing’ him, and how this applies to us in our daily lives.
James 1:19 – My dear brothers, take note of this: Everyone should be quick to listen, slow to speak and slow to become angry. This verse highlights an important lesson on humility and the importance of knowing when to speak and when to react.
