Life Group Discussion Guide
Every Life Group is Different.  Please use these questions to help engage your group with the passage.  Feel free to modify them as needed.
Starter: Have you ever been part of a church where it was more about religion than relationship?  What was that like?
Interaction with Amos:
  • Read Amos 5:18-20
  • In your opinion, who today in the USA thinks they are exempt from God’s judgment?  Why do they think that way?
  • God’s judgment comes to all.  Only Jesus’s intervention keeps us from being experiencing judgment.  How will you feel on the Day of the LORD when Jesus exempts you from judgment?
  • Read Amos 5:21-23.
  • What does it feel like when you hate?  How does God feel?
  • Describe, in your opinion, the kind of church God hates and despises.
  • God rejects the offerings of people.  In your opinion, why would God reject offerings?  Does God reject some offerings today?  Why?
  • Have you ever been to a worship service that felt more like a performance than a God experience?  What made the difference for you?
  • Read Amos 5:24.
  • Share practical ways you can join in the movement for God’s justice.
  • We are called to live right in every relationship.  Would you say today you biggest need is to have a right relationship with God, with others, or with your enemies?  Why?
