“The Wife of Hosea” in 5 Tweets

A recap of my message “The Wife of Hosea” (from the series “Unfaithful: Are You Cheating on God?”) in 140 characters or less.

  1. Gomer’s sin was motivated by a desire for personal gain (cf. Hosea 2:5), something we should be careful of. #NewMorningProvo
  2. Whatever you think it is your sin gives you, remember that it is temporary, lasting only “for a season” (Hebrews 11:25). #NewMorningProvo
  3. One of the dangers of religious activity is that it gives a false sense of security (cf. Hosea 2:11; 1 Samuel 15:22). #NewMorningProvo
  4. Gomer’s sin may cause you to stand in awe of Hosea’s love. However, it is a finite picture of God’s infinite love for you. #NewMorningProvo
  5. When you experience the love of God, your former affections “shall no more be remembered by their name” (Hosea 2:17). #NewMorningProvo
