Sermon from Pastor Sam Medeiros | Worship leader: Tawnya Hons
Passage: Hosea 1:1 - 14:9 From the series "The Major Message from the Minor Prophets".
More than any other prophet, Hosea linked his message closely with his personal life. By marrying a woman he knew would eventually betray his trust and by giving his children names that sent messages of judgment on Israel.
Throughout the book, Hosea pictured the people turning away from the Lord and turning toward other gods. This inclination for idolatry meant that the Israelites lived as if they were not God’s people.
So God, through Hosea's prophecies, with a strong didatic illustration, calls His people toward repentance. He also reminded them that He would ultimately restore their relationship with Him, using the intimate and personal language of “sons” to describe His wayward people.
The question for us to ponder this Sunday is this: How Hosea's message applies to the church today? Could we be walking in Israel's steps and hurting God's heart as they did?
