It is certainly true today that the "Do Nothings" outnumber "The Company of the Concerned," which in part explains why society is so confused and frightened. It's time for God's people to be concerned!
Meet some concerned believers who made a difference in their time and who show you how to make a difference in your time:
Amos-The "farmer preacher" who understood the times better than the scholars and who dared to stand for God's truth against the highest officials in the nation.
Obadiah-The prophet who explained why longstanding family feuds ultimately bring defeat and disgrace.
Micah-The prophet who shows why the only hope for any nation is surrender to the Lord and obedience to His Word.
Zephaniah-The prophet who saw the coming "Day of the Lord" and told the people how to get ready.
Join God's "faithful remnant" and dare to be different!
