So excited to start our new series this morning entitled “Major in the Minors.” Walking through the 12 prophets over the summer months is going to be a great study and I pray we hear and do!
Hosea was a prophet called to demonstrate God’s love in a powerful yet hurtful way. Hosea was called to buy his wife back from her life as a prostitute and love her again as his bride because that is the depth from which God has loved us. Considering God’s great love, will we stop running around on him?
Jeff and I have been wanting to do this sermon on Hosea for over a year now. We saw another preacher role play Hosea during his message and it was probably the most powerful thing either of us had ever seen in our lives. So when God seemed to be leading us to preach through these books, we couldn’t miss the opportunity. Jeff did a fantastic job of playing “Hosea” as he looked desperately for his bride. It was so powerful to experience the dedication that God has to buying us back as his own. You can check out the message here.
Today, we worshiped to:
- Marvelous Light – Charlie Hall
- No Greater Love – Travis Agnew
- How He Loves – David Crowder Band
- I Stand Amazed – North Point
The whole team did a wonderful job! During these months, with a bunch of extra responsibilities, everyone has been stepping it up. When we sang “I Stand Amazed” at the end of the message, I could barely contain myself. Powerful, powerful day, and we still have more to go.
Don’t miss our start of “Revival” tonight. Info here – come on out!
