Chapter-a-Day Hosea 2

I’ll say to Nobody, "You’re my dear Somebody,’ and he’ll say "You’re my God!’" Hosea 2:23b (TM)

God specializes in forgiveness and affirmation. It’s sad that we’ve been duped into thinking that God is this great ogre in the heavens waiting to stomp on us and send us to hell, or else He’s a stern parent shouting "No! Because I said so!" Yet the scriptures reveal that God loves us extravagantly. He goes, quite literally to death – to hell and back to love us and forgive us.

When I’m feeling like a ‘nobody’ – I retreat to God’s Message and hear Him say, ‘you’re my dear somebody.’

I wonder sometimes what the church would be like, what the world would be like if we truly grasped how much God loves us, how much He desires us, and how willing He is to bless us. A small group of people who truly "got it" would, I think, change the world. In fact, it happened 2 centuries ago.
