Jesus is Our Hosea

So, Gomer, do you hear your Hosea calling? He has come looking for you. He longs for you to answer him and to return home. All he asks is that you put your whoring ways behind you. He has clean, fresh, bright white clothes waiting for you. You are not too dirty. You are not too far gone. He desires you just the way you are.

Do you hear him? Will you return to Jesus your Groom?
