Hosea and Gomer

Once, more than 2000 years ago, there lived a prophet named Hosea. One day, God told Hosea that He wanted him to get married. God pointed out the woman and Hosea married her. Her name was Gomer. They loved each other very much, and they had a few children. But one day, Gomer decided that she didn't want to stay with her family any more. So, she moved away and became a prostitute. Her children pleaded her to come back home. One day, Hosea was in the city, and there was a slave merchant selling slaves. When Hosea looked up, his eyes saw a familiar face. It was his beloved Gomer! She was being sold. Hosea approached the merchant and bought Gomer back, saying, "Come home, my love." And they lived happily ever after.

This is a true story, and a picture of what Jesus did for us 2000 years ago when He died on the cross. We are His creation, and we wandered away from His loving hand. He bought us back with His own blood. He wants you to come back to Him. He whispering, "Come home, my love." He payed the price for our sins. Accept His gift today.
