THE BIG IDEA

Providing leadership for the Church is rooted in having God’s heart for the Church and in commitment to God’s mission for the world. 

GROUP DISCUSSION

  • This week we read about the heart of God for God’s people and the lengths Jesus went to demonstrate this to us. How does this strike you? 

  • What are your thoughts on the imagery used in our text this week and the book of Hosea at large?

  • What are the parts of the text this week and of Hosea that you struggle with, and what are the parts that are encouraging and restoring?

PERSONAL REFLECTION

This week we read about the heart of God for God’s people and the lengths Jesus went to demonstrate this to us. Take time this week to reflect on how your own attitude and actions line up with this. Where are they different? What steps are you taking to see them more and more aligned? 

RESOURCES

 

LOOKING AHEAD 

Next week, we look at more poetry, this time from Isaiah. Isaiah was another prophet, who wrote to the southern kingdom of Judah, and frequently spoke of a future messiah that would deliver Israel. In our text next week, he speaks of the broken relationship between Israel and God, and the antidote that will make it all right. Read about it in Isaiah 5:1-7 and 11:1-5
