God’s laws

Devotional picby Rev. Ross Adams

Good morning to all, today’s verse comes from the Old Testament book of the Hosea NIV.

 Hosea 8:12

   12 I wrote for them the many things of my law,
but they regarded them as something alien.


Though God’s laws were written for them (God’s people, Israel), they considered them “alien.’ It is easy to listen to a sermon and think of all the people we know who should be listening, or to read the Bible and think of those who should do what the passage teaches. The Israelites did this constantly, applying  God’s laws to others but not to themselves. This is just another way to deflect God’s will and avoid making needed changes. As you think of others who need to apply what you are hearing or reading, check to see if the same application could fit you. Apply the lessons to your own life first because often our own faults are the very ones we see in others.


 If you don’t have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ, you can at this moment confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus, and believe in your heart that God hath raised Him from the dead. With this action, you are saved!  Be sure to read your bible, get connected to a fellowship of believers in and followers of Christ so that you may grow in knowledge of and in relationship with our Lord.  If you desire, please contact me directly, as I am willing to assist you in any way that I can.
