Hosea 2:14-23 is a clear demonstration of the lengths God was willing to go to spend time with His Bride...the Church. It showed how much God wanted to be with His people. They had gone to follow other loves, but He wasn't going to let them go. He would draw them back to Him...as He is drawing us back to Him. Today is Good Friday...on this day many years ago, Jesus laid down His life for ours. The Bible says, "Greater love has no one than this, that one lay down his life for his friends." He did this out of His great love for us...He did this so that we would have life...and not only life, but life more abundantly...life forever with Him throughout eternity. Just imagine, if you could, being able to spend every waking moment forever with the one you love. Soon He is coming back to get us...I wait for the day expectantly. I hope you do too. Remembering His sacrifice today. He is such a loving God! He loves you! ...and He loves me, and wants nothing more than to spend time with us. He's missing you...spend time with Him.
