We started this study five months ago and as we draw to a close, I can’t help but look back and be awed at what an amazing journey and adventure it has been! God’s Word is alive and active, and this priceless love story between Hosea and Gomer and parallel story between the LORD and Israel hold so many truths and lessons for us, modern day, 21st century readers.
We’ve come to the last chapter and the last verse of the book of Hosea. We’ve covered a lot of ground, learned many lessons, and seen so many aspects of God’s character and the lengths He goes to win back a wayward heart. Now as the book draws to a close along with our time in it, we are left with a final exhortation, a last warning, and a closing challenge.
“Whoever is wise, let him understand these things; whoever is discerning, let him know them; for the ways of the LORD are right, and the upright walk in them, but transgressors stumble in them.”
