Reckless Love: Failure to Thrive

July 22, 2018 Speaker: Joe Walser Series: Reckless Love

Topic: Biblical Passage: Hosea 7:1–7:16

"Failure To Thrive"

Hosea 4:3

Failure to THRIVE IN THREE AREAS in chapter 7

  1. "Unturned CAKE":  Wanting the wrong things...     Hosea 7:8
  2. "Silly DOVE":  TRUSTING the wrong things...    Hosea 7:11
  3. "Treacherous BOW":  WORSHIPPING the wrong things...


   Hosea 2:16-20

   Jeremiah 31:31-34

We have all we need for THRIVING

   Hebrews 8:6-7

   Hebrews 8:8-11

FLOURISHING with victory over "cakes, doves and bows"

  1. There is a NEW DECLARATION about you..."I will remember their sins no more"
  • Your sins are forgiven    Romans 8:1
  • You are declared righteous

    2.  There is a NEW WORK in you..."I will put my laws into their minds and write them on their hearts, and I will be their God and they shall be my people

  • In Christ you are a new creation    2 Corinthians 5:17
  • You have a new heart, of flesh, not stone... that communes with the Holy Spirit in you.    

         Titus 3:5

         1 Corinthians 12:13

Power over "Cakes, Doves, and Bows" or... Now what?

  1. GROW!!!!  Flourish in the WORD    Ephesians 4:15,     1 Peter 2:2
  2. GROW in the WORD for the purpose of Good works!     Colossians 1:9-10
  3. Grow in the WORD for the purpose of good works IN COMMUNITY
