Today you should read: Hosea 2:1-13

Our passage today contains some graphic words and images to describe Hosea’s relationship to his wife Gomer, and ultimately a parable between God and Israel. Rather than skipping over this language or try to dull the sharpness, it is important for us to understand that this language is being used intentionally to show how Israel (and ultimately us) often relate to God.

This passage is beautiful because even when sin is exposed, there is still much evidence of grace in that the covenant of both marriage and between us and God is still intact. The book of Hosea helps us to understand the destruction of sin in a deeper way. It is one thing to acknowledge that sin is bad and deserves punishment; it’s another thing to see this illustrated in the life of a person.

Do you have an accurate understanding of the consequences of your sin? Is there something in your life right now that you need to repent of?
