• Dead Worship Devotional

    Amos 5:21–27

    It is not that God wanted Israel to abandon what He said about the form of worship, as we will see in other passages that address this issue. The goal, rather, was for worship to be true in form and function, to be so deeply rooted within the heart that justice and righteousness inevitably resulted. If worship is not leading us to repent and do good, it is not worship from the heart. We must remember, as Matthew Henry comments, that “the sacrifice of the wicked is really an abomination to [God].” View Resource
