God is constantly calling His people to be with him, to return to him if we've fallen and stumbled in our walk. Yet the call to return is a call to come isn't the call to come empty handed but to bring something as we return. What are called to bring: our words, our confession, our commitment, our renunciation, our faith. And in returning there is blessing, hope and a future. We pray today as you listen that you will be inspired, challenged and hear the call of God to be with him.
Pastor Ian shares from Hosea 12 the need to learn from God's dealings in history and to entwine our lives with him. We are called to wait for him, to have our lives braided into and with the Lord. We pray that as you listen today you will be blessed, inspired and challenged to walk and wait for Him
God is always calling out to his creation. Jesus is constantly calling out to his sheep, his people. Calling to bring us back, calling to bring us home. Here in Hosea 11, Pastor Ian shows how God isn't just calling, but like a lion he is roaring at us, to grab our attention and to save us from utter ruin. Today we pray that as you listen to this you will be challenged and inspired to respond to Jesus and find a home, a place of belonging in Him.
God is lining up blessing in the person of Jesus Christ for his people. An outpouring of grace that will transform our lives and situations. The question is, how do we make sure we are in the bullseye for what he has lined up? Sharing from Hosea 10 Pastor Ian shares thoughts on what we need to do to align our lives with the purpose of God in Jesus. We pray that you'll be blessed and encouraged as you listen to the word.
Hosea challenges us to be a people of knowledge and understanding. It isn't a general challenge to know more but a specific challenge to know God and his word. Pastor Ian shares this challenge with us, asking the question, 'do you know him?' Today we pray that you will be challenged and inspired to know him and deepen your understanding of Jesus and his word.
God's promise and intention is to completely reverse the negative situations in our lives brought caused by sin and disobedience. He wants to transform us, our experience and our lives by completely reversing the previous negatives affects. How and when? We pray that as you listen to this message from the Hosea 2 you will discover the place and timing of your changing situation and that you will see the complete transformation you long for.
