God’s Wake Up Call Through Hosea
Wes McAdams   -  

God used the marriage of Hosea to try to get Israel’s attention. He told Hosea to marry a prostitute and experience the pain of being married to a serial adulterer. God did this so that Israel could see how their unfaithfulness felt to God; how it disappointed, pained, and angered him. However, in spite of their unfaithfulness, God continued to love and pursue his people. As we reflect on our own commitment to him, are we faithful or are we like a wayward spouse? If we were being drawn away from God, what would he have to do to get our attention? (Scripture: Hosea 4:1-6)
