“The LORD said to Hosea, “Go marry a prostitute and have children with her because the land is prostituting itself by departing from me” Hosea 1:3

The story of Hosea’s marriage to Gomer is a picture of God’s relentless love for mankind. Gomer was a harlot and was unfaithful to Hosea. She left Hosea and ended up in slavery but God asked Hosea to look for her, pay her price and restore her as his wife. This is exactly what God did; when mankind walked away from Him, He pursued us and paid our ransom with his life on the cross to restore us into fellowship in Christ.
