Dealing with our Respectable Sins
The Cure for Sin

In our study on respectable sins last week we were reminded that we are Saints and we need to act like it. Our sin, even the ones we tolerate are offensive to God and must be dealt with. God though does not leave us helpless, but provides for us the cure for our sin problem.

Dealing with our Respectable Sins
The Problem of Sin

Our new study is on the sins we find respectable. Not that we encourage each other from participating in them, we just don't discourage them from them. We overlook them as nuisance at best, but certainly not worth fussing about. These include self-pity, unthankfulness, pride/vanity and a critical tongue. Are they really that big a deal? Shouldn’t we focus more on the big things like murder, idolatry and stealing? Am I really that bad?

Hosea 12-14

Hosea
God Pleads for His People to Return

As we close our study in Hosea, once again God pleads with His people to return to Him. God’s people have always rebelled and walked away from Him. Thankfully He is patient and waits for us to come back to Him. He is the husband out looking for a wayward wife, He is the shepherd looking for the lost sheep, He is the wife looking for a lost coin. God is looking for us too when we stray, is He out looking for you?

Hosea 10-11

Hosea
God Still Loves His People

One of the most amazing things is the length of God's patience. I am amazed that God has not destroyed humanity by now as rebellious and sinful as we are; yet in His mercy, He patiently endures. His mercy of course is grounded in His essential characteristic of love. 1 John reminds us that God is love. It is His love that caused the world to come into existence, it is His love that caused Jesus to come to pay for our sins, it is His love that brings about discipline in our lives. God loves you too, no matter how far you have fled from Him.

Hosea 8-9

Hosea
God Will Judge a Sinful Nation

The most damning of all words is declared against Israel—GUILTY. They violated all of God’s standards, His precepts, His law, His expectations, His covenants. They were guilty and God was issuing His statements of judgment against them. They went from a blessed people to a punished people. God is patient and slow to anger, we should be grateful for that, but when His patience has run its course, His justice is sure and swift. It is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of an angry and holy God.

Hosea 6-7

Hosea
Unthankful and Unrepentant

This is the Hebrew word for thanks—it is pronounced t-O-dah, and is a word used quite often when you visit Israel. In Hosea’s world though it was not usually associated and extended towards God. Much like us, Israel forget who had given her strength, victory and blessing. They grumbled and complained and forgot that God gave them all things. Their unthankful hearts led to a heart of unrepentance. This is the normal pattern that we must break or we too will be doomed like Israel. Have you counted your blessings today?

Hosea 5-6

Hosea
Faithlessness in Worship

As Hosea continues his indictment against Israel, worship is his next focus. Everyone, everywhere at all times worships someone or something. It is ingrained within us, even the atheist worships (himself). Israel had received clear instruction from God about how and who they were to worship; they rejected it all. Do we reject God as well? We are still religious, but do we worship and server the way we want?

Hosea 4

Hosea
Unfaithfulness In The Land

Hosea describes what Israel has become culturally. It seems like he is living in 2010 AD instead of 740 BC; as his description of Israel sounds like the United States. This section should be a warning to America. We, like ancient Israel, think that God is especially fortunate to have a people like us. We consider ourselves to be 'God's People' and yet we act like something else.

Hosea 2-3

Hosea
God's Faithful Love Pursues Us

Hosea continues with the very personal metaphor of his own life as God uses him to teach Israel a lesson on love. Israel still has not learned this lesson, but God still loves her and is pursuing her. God will not let anyone that He loves get away. He will use whatever it takes to bring us back into a love relationship with Him, so will we go willingly or will it take drastic measures?

Hosea 1-2

Hosea
God's Faithful Love Towards Us Even When We Stray

The book of Hosea uses a number of metaphors to describe who God is and what He expects of us. He begins with a rather difficult description of what God commanded him to marry an unfaithful wife as an illustration of unfaithful Israel. I think there are many comparisons to Israel that we can make to the church in America today. Are we straying? Is God attempting to get us to come back to Him?

Luke 23

The 7 Statements from the Cross
Into Your Hands

The 7th Statement Jesus expressed from the cross is one of absolute trust. It is a quote from Psalm 31, a psalm that was used by children as a bedtime prayer. He began His statements with 'Father forgive them' and ends His 6 hour ordeal with 'Father I commit myself to your care.' It is instructive for us to ask, 'Do I trust in the Father the same way Jesus trusts in the Father?'

John 19

The 7 Statements from the Cross
Tetelestai

The 6th statement was a one-word Greek phrase 'tetelestai.' It was a very common word in the 1st Century, used mostly by merchants and slaves. Slaves used it at the end of the day to tell their master, 'I have finished the tasks you have required of me.' It was used by merchants when they wrote it across a bill to say, 'This debt has been paid in full.' It was also used by the priests when they had found a lamb who was worthy to be sacrificed. It is finished, there is nothing more to be done, has it been finished in your live?
