Hosea is a love song, with a difference.
Love songs are everywhere. On the radio; on movie soundtracks; in the background as we shop and eat out. Theyre often stuck in our heads and hearts, too.
And yet their lyrics are full of desire leading to disappointment, and hope followed by heartbreak. Love songs reflect our yearning for a love that is solid and sure; and they expose our inability to find it.
The book of Hosea is a love song. But uniquely, its lyrics are about a love which will never fade; which will never disappoint; and which will never say: Enough. The singer throughout Hosea is God: and the love He talks about is His own love, lavished upon His people. Its a love song that is surprising, raw, emotional, at times uncomfortable, but always compelling.
