“The Wife of Hosea” in 5 Tweets

A recap of my message “The Wife of Hosea” (from the series “Unfaithful: Are You Cheating on God?”) in 140 characters or less.

  1. Gomer’s sin was motivated by a desire for personal gain (cf. Hosea 2:5), something we should be careful of. #NewMorningProvo
  2. Whatever you think it is your sin gives you, remember that it is temporary, lasting only “for a season” (Hebrews 11:25). #NewMorningProvo
  3. One of the dangers of religious activity is that it gives a false sense of security (cf. Hosea 2:11; 1 Samuel 15:22). #NewMorningProvo
  4. Gomer’s sin may cause you to stand in awe of Hosea’s love. However, it is a finite picture of God’s infinite love for you. #NewMorningProvo
  5. When you experience the love of God, your former affections “shall no more be remembered by their name” (Hosea 2:17). #NewMorningProvo

“Shaped by the Savior” in 5 Tweets

  1. As a believer, your lifestyle is to be shaped by your Savior, not your circumstances. #NewMorningProvo

“The Two Mountains” in 5 Tweets

A recap of my message “The Two Mountains” (from the series “Jesus Is Better”) in 140 characters or less.

  1. God’s Law isn’t a set of rules that you can keep perfectly, but a mirror that shows us our sin, and thus need of a Savior. #NewMorningProvo
  2. The Law keeps us “afar off” (Exodus 20:18), but grace gathers us into an “assembly” (Hebrews 12:23) before God. #NewMorningProvo
  3. Grace shakes the very foundation of the universe (cf. Haggai 2:6; Hebrews 12:26, 27). #NewMorningProvo
  4. Because of Jesus, the fearful scene on Mount Sinai has given way to a celebration on Mount Zion! #NewMorningProvo

A recap of my message “The Pursuit of Peace and Holiness” (from the series “Jesus Is Better”) in 140 characters or less.

  1. The pursuit of peace and holiness prevents apostasy, hypocrisy, and vulgarity (cf. Heb. 12:14-17). #NewMorningProvo

  3. Sanctification is the process of becoming more like Jesus and is the natural result of the new birth (cf. 2 Cor. 5:17). #NewMorningProvo
  4. It is a terrifying thought that our poor example could be duplicated by those around us. #NewMorningProvo
  5. Esau is a perfect example of what it means to be a “friend of the world” (Jam. 4:4; cf. Heb. 12:16). Are you? #NewMorningProvo
