Hosea 02/03: Bad Romance
Hosea's life is a parable. He put himself through the trouble of an unfaithful marriage in order to illustrate the strained relationship between God and His people. Israel, like an unfaithful partner, broke their covenant with God. The nation had strayed from home like a cheating spouse. In chapter three, we discover that Gomer is not even living with Hosea anymore. It’s heartbreaking and hurtful for our friend Hosea.
When we look at the story of Hosea, we see two key truths that sum up the entire Bible from begging to end. This bizarre tale examines our failures in the midst of God's faithfulness.
