Ad Majorem Dei Gloriam (To the Greater Glory of God)

For: Friday, March 12, 1999

3rd Week of Lent

From: Hosea 14:2-10

Sincere Conversion
[2] Take with you words and return to the Lord; say to him, "Take away 
all iniquity; accept that which is good and we will render the fruit of 
our lips.  [3] Assyria shall not save us, we will not ride upon horses;
and we will say no more, 'Our God,' to the work of our hands.  In thee
the orphan finds mercy."  [4] I will heal their faithfulness; I will love
them freely for my anger has turned from them.  [5] I will be as the dew 
to Israel; he shall blossom as the lily, he shall strike root as the 
poplar," [6] his shoots shall spread out; his beauty shall be like the
olive, and his fragrance like Lebanon.  [7] They shall return and dwell
beneath my shadow, they shall flourish as a garden; they shall blossom as
the vine, their fragrance shall be like the wine of Lebanon.  [8] O 
Ephraim, what have I to do with idols?  It is I who answer and look after
you.  I am like an evergreen cypress, from me comes your fruit.  
[9] Whoever is wise, let him understand these things; whoever is 
discerning, let him know them; for the ways of the Lord are right, and
the upright walk in them, but transgressors stumble in them.
