Tomorrow’s Reading – Hosea Chapters 1-7
The LORD said to me, “Go, show your love to your wife again, though she is loved by another man and is an adulteress. Love her as the LORD loves the Israelites, though they turn to other gods and love the sacred raisin cakes.” So I bought her for fifteen shekels of silver and about a homer and a lethek of barley. Hosea 3:1-2
The story of Hosea offers an interesting parable for the people of Israel.
The nation of Israel is the harlot in the story – running after other lovers and chasing after their carnal appetites.
Homer is God in the story constantly pursing the love of his life.
At this point in the story, Homer buys back his wife with a price – starting to sound familiar?
No matter where you might have been. No matter what you might have done.
God still loves you and is pursuing you.
God desires a relationship with you and continues to pursue you.
A great price has already been paid.
Won’t you return to the One who has loved from you the beginning?
