  • August 2, 2021 | Deuteronomy 28:1

Many prospective parents comb through lists of baby names, considering the meaning of each possibility. They know that names matter. In today’s passage, Gomer gave birth to her first child, a baby belonging to Hosea, and God named the child Jezreel. This name was full of intentional meaning.

One of God’s prophets was told to marry a woman with a damaged reputation. Why would God arrange such a puzzling match?

Author Kelli Worrall is back again with a challenging study on the Old Testament book of Hosea - the first of the minor prophets. Join us as we read Hosea’s stern message for God’s people who had betrayed Him over and over again.

God used an unusual object lesson to drive home His point. He instructed Hosea to marry a woman who not only had a questionable reputation but would be unfaithful to her husband. Why did God ordain this unlikely match? You’ll find out more in this month’s study.

But the lessons we’ll learn this month don’t only apply to Israel. We’ll also be challenged to examine our own relationship with God. Are we faithful? How do we sometimes betray His love?

As always, thank you for studying God’s Word with us!
