What would you do if God called you to be married an adulterous prostitute? Approximately 2,700 years ago, that’s exactly what God asked of a man named Hosea. Why? Because God intended for this prophet’s love for his unfaithful bride to be an illustration of his (God’s) faithful love toward his unfaithful people. This summer we will be taking 11 weekends to work through the Old Testament book of Hosea. On one hand, this study will be so raw that it will be extremely uncomfortable. On the other hand, it will be such a picture of God’s grace that will be extremely comforting. We hope you’ll join us.
For the next 3 weeks, we will be diving into Luke chapter 15. In this chapter, Jesus gives 3 examples of something that was lost, but then found: 1) the lost sheep; 2) the lost coin; and 3) the lost son. Each of these stories reminds us of the words from the old hymn, Amazing Grace, “I once was lost, but now I’m found.” During this series, several of our church members will be sharing their stories of how God found them when they were lost. Join us as we remember the truly amazing grace of our good God.
