One of the characters in the Bible that we don’t hear a lot about, is the prophet Hosea. Hosea was unique in that he was the only prophet who married someone who became a prostitute. The story reads like a Lifetime movie, but demonstrates an unconditional, unstoppable love that Jesus has for us. If you have ever doubted God’s love or need a reminder, this sermon will encourage you that God’s love for you and us is an incredible, unstoppable love.
Many times in our life, our prayers seem like it takes a really long time to get answered, it seems like it take a long time for deliverance from a struggle, it seems to take a long time for God’s promises to come through. Pastor Gary uses the story of Noah to focus on a man who demonstrated endurance as an encouragement to “stay in the race”.
