Hosea and Gomer: The Love That Frees Us
God is a covenant-keeping God, and he consistently reveals it in Scripture as he loves, pursues, and delights in people who don’t show a lot of reciprocity toward that love, pursuit, and care. Just like Gomer, they’re prone to run to other gods. Just like Gomer, they’re prone to run to other husbands. They’re prone to run to other ways. They trust in their own strength, despite the fact that their own strength creates train wrecks for them constantly. This is the God we serve.
