Bible Text: Hosea 3 |


God wants an intimately familiar, exclusive relationship with us. When we love anyone or anything more than God it’s like we are being adulterous and unfaithful. The prophet Hosea not only told Israel they were being unfaithful to God by worshipping idols, he acted this out by marrying a prostitute. God’s love is so radical that in spite of Israel’s (and our) unfaithfulness, He still loves them (us). And He will go to any length to disrupt, arouse, and stop us from pursuing any other lover than Himself.
