This is turning out to be such a wonderful summer of fun and laughter with the grandsons and friends at the pool and the bowling alley and snooker and as for Hosea, it’s turning out to be such a surprisingly wonderful study of the Word of God.
It’s happy happy happy.
Joy joy joy.

It is sin that drives deeper into sin and separates from a holy God. For all things are given by Him in blessings. It is an intentional breaking away from lack of heart knowledge. Only head knowledge. For out of the heart the mouth speaks. Then idolatry and adultery and all of Baal seeps out. The darkness leads deeper and deeper as a downward spiral increases. Until, the light is so dim and invisible as the LORD has removed Himself from that place.
Indeed, there is always hope in repentance. The thing is, well, for me anyways, does it really have to get that bad before a turning back or is it that verse about casting out to save the soul.
So interesting. So inviting. So knowledgeable. Applicable in our world today. So applicable.
In all of this, all I hear is ‘our God reigns’.
12 Sow for yourselves righteousness;
reap steadfast love;
break up your fallow ground,
for it is the time to seek the LORD,
that he may come and rain righteousness upon you.
