Major Lessons, Minor Prophets  \\  Jul 4, 2014

On this Independence Day, Pastor Ray talks about the “fireworks” found in the book of Hosea. This incredible book is the perfect example of the Major Lesson that we can NEVER escape God’s great love and His willingness to forgive us! Bottom line: God won’t let go. Ever. Listen for this encouraging quote: “God creates value in those He loves!”
