This week’s sermon title is “The Bulls of Our Lips.” Now that’s an odd-sermon title, isn’t it? What in the world are the bulls of our lips? The phrase actually comes from Hosea 14:2 when the prophet instructs the repentant Israelites to present to God the bulls of their lips. Because it is such an odd phrase, most translations do not translate it literally. And that’s fine, since none of us even in this age of piercings know of anyone who has a bull on his lips! It is an apt phrase for concluding the book of Hebrews. It captures the sense of the Old Covenant and the heart of the New Covenant. We want to find bulls on our lips!
