Return to the Lord
The earth is the Lord’s and its fullness thereof. He is able to use every available resource within it to draw us back to Him.
Come let us return to the Lord:
Israel had departed from the ways of the Lord. The chapter preceding Hosea 6, ends with an announcement: He vows to bring His children back to Him. In their distress they would seek Him diligently,
“I will return again to My place
Till they acknowledge their offense.
Then they will seek My face;
In their affliction they will earnestly seek Me.”
Returning to the Lord
The sin and fall of the Israelites was their worship of Idols. The prophet Hosea admonished and called on them to come to the place of repentance. It is never too late to return to the Lord when we have offended Him. He is full of mercy, compassion and ever ready to forgive.
Let us therefore return to the Lord in repentance, true worship and obedience. Return to the Lord with all your heart. “He has torn us that He may heal us; he has struck us down, and he will bind us up.” – Hosea 6:1
