Jamie Buckingham Sermon Series #18
The story of Hosea and Gomer is probably the greatest love story in all the Bible because it is a real-life demonstration of the love God has for His people. Hosea took Gomer, a town prostitute, to be his wife. When she eventually left him, Hosea bought her back from the threat of slavery and death. His actions demonstrated how God gave his most beloved Son, to purchase us and save us from the bonds of sin. This extraordinary story transcends the years. Jamie Buckingham is a master story teller and this is a story he tells in a manner no one else can.
