Hosea’s wife left him, cheated on him, and brought shame to his name. But when her life fell apart, she turned to the slave blocks to pay off her debts. God called Hosea to go and purchase his wife back, and despite her actions, to love her once more.
In the same way, God loves us, his people. He created us, but we rebelled. Then Jesus came and paid it all, he ransomed us and freed us from slavery so that we might live in a loving relationship with him again. This is amazing grace!
