15以 後 我 不 再 稱 你 們 為 僕 人 ， 因 僕 人 不 知 道 主 人 所 做 的 事 。 我 乃 稱 你 們 為 朋 友 ； 因 我 從 我 父 所 聽 見 的 ， 已 經 都 告 訴 你 們 了 。Henceforth I call you not servants; for the servant knoweth not what his lord doeth: but I have called you friends; for all things that I have heard of my Father I have made known unto you.你 們 所 受 的 ， 不 是 奴 僕 的 心 ， 仍 舊 害 怕 ； 所 受 的 ， 乃 是 兒 子 的 心 ， 因 此 我 們 呼 叫 ： 阿 爸 ！ 父 ！For ye have not received the spirit of bondage again to fear; but ye have received the Spirit of adoption, whereby we cry, Abba, Father.
“A spirit of prostitution leads them astray; they are unfaithful to their God" (Hosea 4:12).
“A spirit of prostitution is in their heart; they do not acknowledge the LORD" (Hosea 5: 4).
Prostitution. It’s an ugly word. It means to sell oneself for low purposes, for things of little value. We do not like using the word and would never consider applying it to ourselves.
Yet, the spirit of prostitution that God claimed the Israelites of was unfaithfulness and refusing to acknowledge God as Lord. Is not our society guilty of the same?
We want to serve God, but our hearts wander. We say we love Him, but we also love our stuff. We want God in our lives, but not really as boss. Of our Lord
Has the spirit of prostitution crept into our lives?
Like the picture of the adulterous woman seeking after other lovers, we are unfaithful to God when we seek after other things. Its its people and their approval, or success and the toys they bring, we look to them to fill us up rather than seeking God, the One who saved us and the only One who can satisfy.
Remember the day God forgave your sins. On that day, a sacred covenant was sealed between believer and Savior. Let us be true to that holy bond, faithful to God. Let us serve Him complete and only. Let us live in such a way -in word and deed-that our lives proclaim Him as our Lord and glorify His name
Most Holy God, forgive me of my unfaithfulness to You and failing to acknowledge You as Lord of my life. I do not want there to be a spirit of prostitution in my heart. As David prayed, I also pray: Create in me a Pure heart, O God, and renew a steadfast spirit penet me. (Psalm 51:10)
Question: Where do you see unfaithfulness to God in your life? What does it mean to acknowledge that God is Lord?
