Hosea 13 I’m sorry but I just can’t ge

Missions Paul

Hosea 13

I’m sorry but I just can’t get past the first 5 words this morning.
“When Ephraim spoke men trembled”
I’m a preacher.
So I can say this…
No I won’t say it, I’ll just give you some quotes.
You will know what I am saying …

“It is a poor sermon that gives no offense; that neither makes the hearer displeased with himself nor with the preacher” ~George whitefield

“The preaching that this world needs most is the sermons in shoes that are walking with Jesus Christ.” ~ D.L. Moody

You may have been thrown down (v16) but you will be lifted up (v23).
God is always behind the stone. He specialises in coming out of those dark places. Trust Him.
