Forgiveness

God’s concern for justice that requires faithfulness and love that offers forgiveness can be seen in his dealings with Hosea.

We can err by forgetting God’s love and feeling that our sins are hopeless, but we can also err by forgetting his wrath against our sins and thinking he will continue to accept us no matter how we act.

Forgiveness is a key word: when God forgives us, he judges the sin but shows mercy to the sinner.

We should never be afraid to come to God for a clean slate and a renewed life.

Hosea 14:9

Let those who are wise understand these things.Let those with discernment listen carefully. The paths of the LORD are true and right,and righteous people live by walking in them. But in those paths sinners stumble and fall.
