I just posted an outline of Hosea on truthsaves. Hosea demonstrates the grief of God and His continuing love for a rebellious people. The book begins with grief and ends with hope.
For me, Hosea is a “must-read.” So often I wonder how God could accept someone like me. But He does. He desires a relationship with us, no matter how rancid we appear to Him. He loves us and continually calls us to return to Him.
