Reflections on Hosea 1-3

Hosea is called to illustrate in his own life Israel’s unfaithfulness and God’s love.

  • Unfaithfulness – Hosea marries a wife who is unfaithful – a vivid picture of Israel’s unfaithfulness to God. In what ways can we be unfaithful to God?  How does this picture reveal the horror of our sin?
  • Redeemed – Hosea redeems his wife and brings her back home. God will judge his people, yet he promises restoration.  Jesus redeems us from our unfaithfulness.  A day is coming when peace and righteousness and faithfulness will reign, and we will know the Lord (2:18-20).  Praise the Lord for his incredible love for us!
