Jesus’ Disciples Are Known by Their Love
In suffering and dying for our sins, Jesus established the ultimate definition of love: the attitude of the heart, mind, and will that gives freely and faithfully even to those who do not deserve to be loved. The love of Jesus we call grace. On the night before he died, Jesus called on believers of all time to imitate his love: “As I have loved you,” he said, “so you must love one another.” In Acts 11, God teaches Peter the special nature of his love for all people.

What was Hosea’s first day on the job as prophet to Israel like? Finding a wife who would, according to the Lord’s own decree, cheat on him, have an affair with another man or men, and even bear children as the result of this adultery!  Could he forgive her for this?  Could God?

In the 14 chapters of his dealings with the people of Israel, the prophet Hosea condemns the sins of the Israelites no less than 150 times, and over half of those target their adultery against the Lord as pictured by the adultery of Hosea’s wife. As we apply this spiritual adultery to ourselves, we rejoice that God remains his unchanging, faithful self, calling us to know his forgiveness.
