The Plumb Line
by PamFord Davis
8/08/2019 / Devotionals
I’m surprised at how vividly I remember some things from my childhood. I won’t comment on the things I have forgotten (from then or today). My mind stored images of Dad, Grandpa Ford and Uncle Wallace building our garage.
I watched as they were building a wall. Checking their work, to be sure that the boards and wall were level; the men used a plumb line and level tool. Both the plumb line and level fascinated me.
“Thus He showed me, and behold, the Lord was standing by a vertical wall with a plumb line in His hand. The Lord said to me, ‘What do you see, Amos?’ And I said, ‘A plumb line.’ Then the Lord said,
‘Behold I am about to put a plumb line
In the midst of My people Israel.
I will spare them no longer (Amos 7:7-8 NASB).”
The nation of Israel did not measure up to God’s covenant standard. He voiced a warning of upcoming judgment. The LORD is a righteous judge; He is sovereign.
“Now judgment is upon this world; now the ruler of this world will be cast out. And I, if I am lifted up from the earth, will draw all men to Myself (John 12:31 NASB).”
Judgment… Have His people heeded the warnings?
“For it is time for judgment to begin with the household of God; and if it begins with us first, what will be the outcome for those who do not obey the gospel of God (1 Peter 4:17 NASB)?
