Judah Smith: Hosea and Gomer – Sermon Jam

Hosea 3 English Standard Version (ESV)

Hosea Redeems His Wife

And the Lord said to me, “Go again, love a woman who is loved by another man and is an adulteress, even as the Lord loves the children of Israel, though they turn to other gods and love cakes of raisins.” So I bought her for fifteen shekels of silver and a homer and a lethech[a] of barley. And I said to her, “You must dwell as mine for many days. You shall not play the whore, or belong to another man; so will I also be to you.” For the children of Israel shall dwell many days without king or prince, without sacrifice or pillar, without ephod or household gods. Afterward the children of Israel shall return and seek the Lord their God, and David their king, and they shall come in fear to the Lord and to his goodness in the latter days.

Footnotes:

  1. Hosea 3:2 A shekel was about 2/5 ounce or 11 grams; a homer was about 6 bushels or 220 liters; a lethech was about 3 bushels or 110 liters

Ravi Zacharias: Don’t Underestimate What God Can Do Through You!

“It is by the grace and the mercy of God that we can make it to Heaven.”

“The biggest mistake we often make in life in the task in which God has called us, is to assume we can’t do very much.”

“God has used children and ordinary people to do great things.”

“Don’t underestimate what God can do through you.”
