    1. As Pastor Reggie taught this powerful introduction to Amos, I heard him weave the word ‘conduct’ throughout. He pointed out a principle and said “this principle needs to be stressed among God’s people today…Amos insisted that the external practice of religion divorced from right conduct is unacceptable to God.” Pastor Reggie went on to emphasize that “right conduct has to be backed up by right living day in and day out”…and that “authentic religion is changed behavior”.

      I would also like to echo an ‘amen to what Sara said, “Thank you Tammy and June for your part in providing this study online for us.”

      1. Pastor Reggie made another comment that was sobering and relevant for today. He said that the Lord will not only judge the nations of the earth for their evil deeds but would judge His own people for their breach of covenant with Him.

    2. In the hospital where I work, we use a “med Pyxis” to pull medications for our patients. At the “med Pyxis” we have a laminated mnemonic that says: STAR ……(STOP, THINK, ACT, REVIEW). 🤔…… I wonder if this mnemonic would be great to use as a guideline for our conduct?

      1. Tammy, love the 🌟 Star mnemonic! I read your comment last evening and felt tested this am.

        This am, Sunday, early I read a bit here and there to rush my morning along and get a daily dose of encouragement for my day. Then, I read this paragraph, below, in a blog from an older news reporter, and felt “STAR” ⁉️She wrote:

        “Turns out, the stillness and simplicity I had been yearning for wasn’t outside. It was within me all along. It’s just that I’d never slowed down long enough to gain access to it. Turns out the words I’d been using to push myself only left me feeling distressed, small, scattered, unaccomplished, broken, and unlovable.”

        I taught a 3 day seminar some years ago and the high light of my workbook was??? “It was within me all along.” Now, I believe Debi will be able to give us the exactness of my words but someway I think it started from Gen 28:16 “Then Jacob awoke from his sleep and said, “Surely the LORD is in this place, and I wasn’t even aware of it!”

        So many beautiful ways to 🌟 our lives, CONDUCT! Thanks Tammy for sharing a help 🌠 from your daily life. “STAR ……(STOP, THINK, ACT, REVIEW). 🤔…… I wonder if this mnemonic would be great to use as a guideline for our conduct?”

  1. “Authentic religion is changed behavior… People of God need this message today…Seek God’s will…follow God’s command everyday. Justice…” taken from Reggie’s text
    I must say if this was a school course that I just started I might drop out before next class. This introduction is laying a foundation that this is not just about the study of history but about my behavior. Since I know it’s truth my decision will just have to come down on the side of stick with it hoping to make some changes. Maybe a good Christian can become a great Christian. I’m doing a word action study as we go along. I started with conduct…now today Justice.

    Note: Tammy do you or June have the handout?

  2. I along with Sara and Debi thank you for laying the foundation of the book of Amos and thanks to June and Tammy for getting Reggie’s lesson online.

    The book of Amos after listening to the introduction seems to be packed with Nine Spacesaver Premium Vacuum Storage which may take a while to unpack. The cry of Amos of justice and righteous trumpets from the mouth of God through Amos.

    The one of many relevant topics that stands out to me is that when we get Baptized is that we enter into a covenant agreement with God.
    Where we receive forgiveness and the Holy Spirit and we give Him our lives, our service, and our devotion. Like you asked with a nation, do we see that today? Yes! I hope I do better as you lay out Amos to us and pray I and others around me don’t fail in our covenant relationship with God. I pray I make changes to be more in step with God’s covenant🙏🙏🙏

  3. In school we have heard over and over that without change history repeats itself. Will we heed the words of the prophets cry? We are a nation which as you laid out are secure on the inside from our enemies and very prosperous on the inside which leads to complacency. We are prideful, selfish, corrupt, oppressive, and filled with moral decay. Will we listen to the message of impending judgement, repeating history once again or change????

  4. “I started with conduct…now today Justice.”….Sara’s words above.

    On reviewing my notes from Pastor Reggie’s teaching, I understood him to say in reference to changed lives that we are to seek/cry for God’s justice…that it is needed today. He cited Amos 5:24: “But let justice run down like water, And righteousness like a mighty stream.”
    According to his teaching,social injustice was rampant among God’s chosen people in Amos’s time.

  5. Thank you for sharing the Amos outline and your conduct correlation “STAR ……(STOP, THINK, ACT, REVIEW)”, Tammy!

    And Sara, you wrote above, “I taught a 3 day seminar some years ago and the high light of my workbook was??? “It was within me all along.” Now, I believe Debi will be able to give us the exactness of my words but someway I think it started from Gen 28:16 “Then Jacob awoke from his sleep and said, “Surely the LORD is in this place, and I wasn’t even aware of it!”

    Sara, I reviewed your workbook from your 3 day seminar, “The Dance of Healing -The “Ultra-Healing Spirit” Comes from Within”. You were correct in that those words started with the story of Jacob from Genesis 28:1-22, with the focus verse repeatedly throughout the book being vs. 16: “Truly Yahweh was in this place and I never knew it”.

    Here is a beautiful prayer excerpt I found from the book regarding ,”It was within me all along.”

    “…Oh, My Father, my soul is exceedingly joyful as I celebrate the gift of the Mystery Within; the gift of the Indwelling Presence, The Power of Your Spirit ignites a great fire within. I am Your Temple in the earth. Jesus, You are the Light of this temple. I need no other Inner Light. I have planted the Tree of Life in my soul. I have chosen to harvest its fruit and eat from its tree. The fruit of healing, the fruit of authenticity of my personality and character is growing in my soul (John 14:9 says) “If you have seen Me, you have see the Father.” Yes, I have seen thee and I have seen me. For truly we are one, “You were in this temple and I did not know it.” I am authentic, woven and created by you for a purpose and delight. Dear Lord Jesus, help me to love and care for this precious beautiful temple that You have created from within manifesting the outward! May I never again try to fit into molds made by the enemy of my soul. I will begin and continue to access from within. My soul is like a computer; there are volumes of information inside the screen that I don’t know how to access yet. But I know now, my “Ultra-healing must come from within. So, I will be wise and learn to use the power hidden within. Amen.”

    1. Absolutely stunning prayer of faith for all that one might desire to be! A deep desire to have the character and integrity of Christ the Lord that dwells within to be seen on the outward giving a brilliant light for others to shadow their walk.

      Thanks Debi for lighting the memory of this study as we strive to walk with The Light.
