"The point of Hosea is not for you to convince God that you love Him, leading to religious actions. The point is to convince you how much God loves you, leading you to act in response." Why does the feeling of love seem to come and go? Listen to this teaching from our sermon series on the Book of Hosea. In "Your Love is Like a Morning Cloud" we see that 'love' that comes and comes is rooted in desiring things we think God can give us rather than desiring God Himself.
"God wants you to feel the disturbing reality that no one else can save you so that you will desperately seek the only one who can." Why do we sometimes feel like it is hard to find God? Why do some people seem to always be searching for the truth? Listen to this teaching from our sermon series on the Book of Hosea. In "Will You Find God if You Seek Him?" we see the root issues that keep us from finding God and indicators of a heart that is truly seeking Him.
"God's faithfulness to us should lead to our increasing faithfulness to Him." In Hosea chapter 4, God reveals to His people the vastness of their sin that has led them astray. Yet, as a good, gracious Father, God continues to pursue His people. Listen to this teaching from our sermon series on the Book of Hosea. In 'Divorce Court,' we see how God demonstrates His faithfulness to us and how this demonstration of His love leads us to be in awe and respond with faith.
"God pays the price to rescue us and have us for Himself." In the Old Testament, God uses Hosea and his marriage to Gomer as a picture of His faithfulness to His people, even when they rebelled and strayed. Listen to this teaching from our sermon series on the Book of Hosea. In 'You Are My People,' we see how God demonstrates His love for us by His willingness to pay the price for our rescue.
