Hosea is a prophetic account of God’s relentless pursuit of His bride/children, compelled by His covenant faithfulness, despite our idolatry/spiritual adultery/rebellion, for the universal and eternal display of His glory.
In love, God ensures His people receive His Word, even a Word of rebuke, calling His people to repentance for their failure to love Him and their neighbour. In justice, God will remove His Word if it is ignored.
The Abounding, Steadfast Love of God: 1. God’s sovereign control over events on the earth; 2. God’s determination to get his message to the nations; 3. The need for repentance from sin in general; 4. The need for repentance from self-centeredness and hypocrisy in particular; 5. Because of the abounding, steadfast love of God, we have full assurance that God will relent when sinners repent
