Steadfast Love
Hosea 1-3; 11

How can justice (care for the vulnerable)
And righteousness (right relationship and goodness)
Flow out of my life like a never-failing stream?

The word of the Lord that came to Hosea son of Beeri . . . When the Lord began to speak through Hosea, the Lord said to him, “Go, marry a promiscuous woman and have children with her, for like an adulterous wife this land is guilty of unfaithfulness to the Lord.” So he married Gomer daughter of Diblaim, and she conceived and bore him a son.
Hosea 1:1-3
Jezreel (God Scattered/Impending Ruin)
Lo-Ruhamah (No Mercy/Not Loved)
Lo – Ammi (Not my People)
Yet the Israelites will be like the sane on the seashore which cannot be measured or counted.
Hosea 1:10

Steadfast Love - Chesed
I will betroth you to me forever;
I will betroth you inrighteousness and justice,
inlove and compassion.
I will betroth you infaithfulness,
and you will acknowledge the Lord.
Hosea 2:19-20

The Lord said to Hosea, “Go, show your love to your wife again, though she is loved by another man and has been unfaithful to you.”
Hosea 3:1

"Start all over: Love your wife again, your wife who's in bed with her latest boyfriend, your cheating wife. Love her the way I, God, love the Israelite people, even as they flirt and party with every god that takes their fancy."
Hosea 3:1 [MSG]
We are in grave danger of forgetting that we are part of a divine love story.
When Israel was a child, I loved him, and out of Egypt I called my son. The more I called them, the more they went from me; they kept sacrificing to the Baals, and offering incense to idols. Yet it was I who taught Ephraim to walk, I took them up in my arms; but they did not know that I healed them. I led them with cords of human kindness, with bands of love. I was to them like those who lift infants to their cheeks. I bent down to them and fed them. They shall return to the land of Egypt, and Assyria shall be their king, because they have refused to return to me. The sword rages in their cities, it consumes their oracle-priests, and devours because of their schemes. My people are bent on turning away from me. To the Most High they call, but he does not raise them up at all. How can I give you up, Ephraim? How can I hand you over, O Israel? How can I make you like Admah? How can I treat you like Zeboiim? My heart recoils within me; my compassion grows warm and tender. I will not execute my fierce anger; I will not again destroy Ephraim; for I am God and no mortal, the Holy One in your midst, and I will not come in wrath. They shall go after the LORD, who roars like a lion; when he roars, his children shall come trembling from the west. They shall come trembling like birds from Egypt, and like doves from the land of Assyria; and I will return them to their homes, says the LORD. Hosea 11:1-11
Song leading into Communion (Linda)
CD Saved by Lisa Carr – Track 12 “Thy Steadfast Love” 5:17

Thy steadfast love extends to the heavens,
Thy merciful justice is like the great deep,
Thy righteousness is like the mountains
And Oh, LORD, You have saved me!
Psalm 36; Hosea 2

"Bring the whole tithe into the storehouse, that there may be food in my house. Test me in this,” says the Lord Almighty, “and see if I will not throw open the floodgates of heaven and pour out so much blessing that there will not be room enough to store it."Malachi 3:10
