Hosea is such a beautiful love story.
It’s the love story of Hosea and his wandering wife Gomer. It’s the story of God’s love for His wayward people Israel. Ultimately, though, it is the story of God’s unfailing love for you and me. Like Israel and Gomer, we are prone to wander from His love. God loves us too much to let us go though. He goes to extraordinary lengths to bring us back to Him.
Gomer did not deserve to be redeemed. Her behavior did not merit such mercy. Israel did not deserve God’s faithful betrothal. Their unfaithfulness did not merit such mercy. You and I do not deserve salvation. Our sin does not merit such mercy.
Join us Tuesday evenings at 6:30 PM.
Discover powerful truths such as:
• Why did God redeem you?
• Why did Jesus pay the ultimate price for your redemption?
• Why does God continue to give His unconditional love to a people who continually throw it away?
It’s not because we deserve it; it’s because His mercy demands it. Aren’t you glad God does not treat us as our sin deserves? (Ps. 103:10) God chose you and loves you. This love story is your story. Even if you are faithless, He will remain faithful.
• If you are enslaved, God will buy you back.
• If you are lost, God will find you.
• If you are ashamed, God will cover you.
• If you wander off, God will bring you home.
• If you give up on Him, God will not give up on you.
• No matter where you are, God sees who you are, and He loves you.
Through the story of Hosea, God tenderly touches your arm and whispers, “Come home. My love sets you free. When you get tired of striving and wandering, I’ll be there to draw you to Myself again and remind you who you are in Christ.”
