YOU CAN GO HOME AGAIN

“Return, O Israel, to the Lord your God, for you have stumbled because of your iniquity” (Hosea 14:1).

True prophets are never prophets after the fact; waving their finger saying, “See, I told you so.” Instead, God’s most faithful messengers see past their pronouncements of coming judgment to a day of renewal and restoration. Hosea, perhaps, best captures the inexhaustible patience of God and his yearning to see the most willfully defiant sinners return to his fellowship. There is no range of “fallenness” that is beyond the reach of God’s grace.
