Passage: Hosea 14:1–14:9
God had every reason to reject His sinful people, Israel, but he chose to offer them forgiveness. In the book of Hosea, we learn that instead of bringing sacrifices they needed to bring sincere words of repentance and ask God for his gracious forgiveness. But what does that mean for us today? In chapter 14, Hosea shares hope for the Israelites that is also hope for us.
