The truth that obedience to God brings blessing is a key principle in understanding what it means to be a child of God. Failure to understand this and failure to implement it will forfeit God's best in your life. Joshua understood it, and you will too after today’s message.
Today we begin an exciting journey through the book of Joshua. After Moses’ death, Joshua found himself next in line in God’s great ongoing plan. His story is not only an exciting one, it’s an encouraging one as well. Because as we’ll see, the torch has been passed to us as well.
God told the prophet Jeremiah, “Before I formed you in the womb, I knew you; Before you were born, I sanctified you.” And in today’s message God gives Hosea the same message about His love. It’s a perfect love for an imperfect people.
Today’s teaching contains God’s prescription for reconciliation and restoration of our relationship with Him. What God asked Hosea to do is an example to all of us. Open your Bibles to Hosea chapter 6 and follow along.
Today’s message from Hosea chapter 11 continues the theme we started last week, “Patient Love.” It’s the kind of love God has for us, and the kind He expects us to have for others. It’s not always easy, but with God, all things are possible.
To know God, you’ve got to spend time with Him- you’ve got to engage with Him through prayer and His Word. That was Paul’s passion in today’s passage, and we hope it is yours as well.
The Bible gives us clear warning about false teaching and false teachers. It is a serious subject, and today’s is a sobering message.
The days of “Do as I say, not as I do” are long over. When Paul exhorts us to follow him as he follows Christ, he’s saying, “Follow Christ.”
The Word of teaches both God’s sovereignty and man’s responsibility. Finding a biblical balance between the two is a dauting task, but today help is on the way.
Where do you put your faith and trust? That is the question that is posed in today’s teaching. Men may fail us, but God never will. When you can count on anyone else, you can count on Him.
