Committing adultery against God

20 Aug

If God asked you to start dating and marry someone who, guaranteed, would commit adultery, would you do it?

Maybe the better question is why would God ask that?

Read Hosea and listen to the podcast.  And then let’s discuss this further.  What happens when we read Hosea’s story is that we put ourselves in Hosea’s shoes.  We feel his pain.  It hurts bad when someone betrays your love, leaving you with raging emotions and unanswered questions.  While God certainly wants us to see that pain, which is really his pain, his message to Hosea is that we should put ourselves in Gomer’s, Hosea’s wife’s, shoes.  We are the adulterous ones.

Have you committed adultery against God?  Have you attempted to find satisfaction in lesser things?
