Matthew Henry on Hosea 5:8-15

Matthew Henry on Hosea 5:8-15

“The destruction of impenitent sinners is a thing which shall surely be; it is not mere talk, to frighten them, but it is an irrevocable sentence. And it is a mercy to us that it is made known to us, that we have timely warning given us of it, that we may flee from the wrath to come. It is the privilege of the tribes of Israel that, as they are told their duty, so they are told their danger, by the oracles of God committed to them.”

Matthew Henry, Matthew Henry’s Commentary on the Whole Bible: Complete and Unabridged in One Volume (Peabody: Hendrickson, 1994), 1474.

As you prepare for worship

Today, you are preparing for worship–getting dressed, having your morning coffee, if you have small children, chasing them around the house so that they are prepared. If you have teenagers, you might have a fight of some kind.

Take time today to think about what you are doing when you worship. Ask yourself, “What difference will it make that I am worshipping today?” “What benefit do I expect to receive from the Word today?” “Can I pray for others that today will be a day of growth?”

Do you expect to grow today?
