The Book of Hosea

A 7 day devotional series on thriving and surviving this Spring Break

~~ Day 1: Spiritual Adultery ~~ 

Read:  Hosea 1-3

Hosea is a book of rich metaphor and complex prophecy. Predictions of the capture of Israel by Assyria intertwine with the complexity of God’s love for his wayward people to demonstrate the balance of demanding holiness and utter mercy. But what was Israel’s sin? What had brought this affluent nation to a place of imminent destruction? Idolatry.

Process with the Lord through the journaling questions!

Take away:    
Take some time to list one to three people who can actively support you in your fight against idolatry. Reach out to these individuals and let them know that you want their accountability as you fight your idols. These can be people who can help you create an action plan to fight against idolatry and make sure that your idols never take you to those unwanted places again. I would recommend setting up times where you can meet regularly to talk openly about.
