Key Verse

“So he went and took Gomer the daughter of Diblaim; which conceived, and bare him a son.” Hosea 1:3

Text — Hosea 1:1-6


Hosea was an Old Testament prophet who God used his family life as teaching aids to portray the sinfulness of the children of Israel and His love and forgiveness towards them despite their unfaithfulness. God told Hosea to marry Gomer an adulteress, he went in obedience and paid all that was required, and took Gomer as a wife legitimately. Gomer was never faithful to her husband but still went on committing sin which was against the marriage covenant.

She left her children, abandoned her husband, and went to another man. God told Hosea to go look for her and to pay a price of redemption to bring her back home to himself. Hosea did all and loved the unlovable so as to bring the message of God to the Israelites.
The story of adulterous Gomer is similar to that of many children today. God gave His Son to die on the cross at Calvary to save and redeem you from sin.

That was a great price! Are you still taking your salvation for granted and not being serious about your Christian faith? Are you serving God or worldly things?
The call of God to you today is to depart from sin and cleave to the Lord and the Lord alone. The time will soon be up and those who are serving God in truth will soon be caught up to meet the Lord in the air. Are you ready?
