TAKE TIME: February 17-22, 2014 Schedule

Introduction: As we conclude the story of Hosea we will read of God's promise of restoration to Israel. Then we will read the book of Jonah, the man most noted for being swallowed by a great fish, perhaps a whale, and see God's offer of grace to the citizens of the city of Ninevah. Finally, we will finish out the week by returning to II Kings, the book that provides the back drop against which these prophets lived and worked.

  • Tuesday - Hosea 11:1-12:14
  • Wednesday - Hosea 13:1-14:9
  • Thursday - Jonah 1:1-2:10

Prayer Journal (ACTS)
  • Adoration - Praise God that He is merciful. No one deserves salvation. No one!
  • Confession - Ask God to reveal hidden sin in your life and then confess it.
  • Thanksgiving - Thank God for any answers to your prayers.
  • Supplication - What are your prayer requests this week? List them for future reference so that you can see how God answers.

Search the Scriptures

Look for references for each of the following:
  • Promises that God made and to whom He made them. Do they apply to you?
  • References that either refer to or infer something about future events.
  • What does this passage teach about Jesus?
  • Commandments that God made and to whom He made them. Do they apply to you?

Putting the Word into Action

Jonah was a man who wanted his country's enemies to die in their sins. You and/or your country have enemies, too. Do a little research into an enemy group, whether it be another nation, another religion, or perhaps an organization, and see if there is anyone attempting to reach them with the Word of God. Jesus told us to love our enemies and to pray for them. Organizations attempting to reach those known for their hatred and persecution can always use help and funds.
