Restore the Roar!
The Detroit Lions—a largely hapless NFL franchise—have as one of their cheers, “Restore the Roar!” The Book of Amos has this as its singular goal: to restore the rightful roar from the Lion, Lord Yahweh, the God of Israel. The temptation is to put our hands over our ears to drown out His roar. The world, the devil, and our old Adam tempt us to clip the claws on the Lion and clean up His bloody Passion we are called to follow. But the Bride of Christ is called to holy reverence before the Lord, the King of the universe. Beginning with Ash Wednesday and climaxing with His resurrection roar on Easter morning, we will listen and learn from the Lion using the Book of Amos.
