This is our third message in the scandal that is the book of Hosea. We have discussed the love story of Hosea, a story of sacrificial love, devotion, and commitment mixed with scandal, unfaithfulness, and disgrace. The purpose of this series is to expose what the Bible really means when it says, “God loves you.” I warned you that Hosea will not make any sense to a person with a casual, modern view of love. Any love that comes and goes based on feelings or emotions is casual and is not the kind of love God has for us, because God is not a casual lover. God’s love does not come and go. He is not indifferent, unconcerned, or aloof about those he loves. God’s love and commitment to his people are genuine, intense, determined, powerful, and deeply rooted in covenant.
