Day 249

Hosea 12-14

The end of Hosea is a commentary on what the people have done, what their plight is, and what they need to do to return to God. Hosea’s instructions boil down to a very simplistic idea which is “turn from your wickedness and turn toward God.” This is an important instruction for us today as well. Too often we get mesmerized by the glamor and enticement of sin but just like any mirage we are overcome by its emptiness. The only true pursuit is toward Christ. Which way are you headed today? Toward wickedness or toward righteousness. Turn to God today, repent, and follow Him!
