The Wayward Son [Podcast]

Hosea 11

Using the metaphor of a wayward son, Hosea presents God’s intensely personal, restorative confrontation with Israel. In spite of God’s continued faithfulness, His people have repeated unfaithfulness—and yet God promises to restore them simply by grace. We see in our own lives the need for God’s intensely personal restoration with us; left to ourselves we would wander in sin, but God in His patient grace works to draw us back to Himself.
