“A Snapshot of a Beautiful, Unsettling Story”
Hosea 1:1-3:3

Introduction: God uses the Minor Prophets to convey Major Messages to His people- not just Then, but even Now.

A Greater Context

  • The Private story of a Prophet: Hosea
  • The Historical story of a Nation: Israel
  • The Personal story of a Sinner: Us
  • The Gospel story of a Savior: Jesus

An Unsettling Command (Hosea 1:2)

  • God uses Prophets not just to Proclaim the Message, but to Personify the Message.

A Wayward Condition (Hosea 1:3-9)

  • God Identifies our Wayward Condition:
    • Scattered”, “No Mercy”, “Not My People

A Religious Cover-Up (Hosea 2:13)

  • Hypocrisy: Outwardly “Perfect”, but Inwardly Profane

A Beautiful Cost (Hosea 2:14-3:3)

  • The Cross isn’t just “The” Cross, it’s “Our” Cross

The Major Message: Redemption (Hosea 1:10-2:1)

  • God brought the pain and the wrath so that we would not be Rejected by a Holy God, but Redeemed by a Loving Savior.
  • Jesus has given Us a New Identity:
    • “Not My People” becomes “Family
    • “Scattered” becomes “Gathered
    • “No Mercy” becomes “Mercy
