Hosea as a Love Story
God’s love as seen in marriage. A man's love for his bride no matter how far away, how deeply cut, how unfaithful she may become or how "irreconcilable" the marriage there is an orphic need that is inscribed on his being. That to lose that love would cause such pain and anguish to God that we as fallen people can take some hope. That we can know that pain by reading about Hosea's gives us a glimpse. That so many in our society undergo this trial is a shame. The love between two people joined in marriage oughtn't be ground under the wheels of sin. In this way we see the depths of God's Love for his wife of whoredom.
