"In you the orphan finds mercy." Hosea 14:3
Matt closed his sermon on the book of Hosea with this point on Hosea 14:3:
"When we embrace the love of God, this propels us to tell the world. When it lands on you that He rescued you- it causes you to GO!"
Because the Lord has shown us mercy by adopting us, this becomes our mission with Him- to rescue the orphan- All for His glory only by His mercy.

"Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed un in Christ...even as he chose us in him before the foundation of the world, ... In love he predestined us for adoption through Jesus Christ, according to the purpose of his will, to the praise of his glorious grace, with which he has blessed us in the Beloved. In him we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of our trespasses, according to the riches of his grace." Ephesians 1:3-7
