  1. The Heart of God Hosea 11:1-11

  2. The Heart of God • The Reality of God’s Love – vv. 1-2

  3. Matthew 2:14-15 And he rose and took the child and his mother by night and departed to Egypt 15 and remained there until the death of Herod. This was to fulfill what the Lord had spoken by the prophet, “Out of Egypt I called my son.”

  4. Exodus 4:22-23 Then you shall say to Pharaoh, ‘Thus says the Lord, Israel is my firstborn son, 23 and I say to you, “Let my son go that he may serve me.” If you refuse to let him go, behold, I will kill your firstborn son.’ ”

  5. The Heart of God • The Reality of God’s Love – vv. 1-2 • The Picture of God’s Love – vv. 3-4

  6. Deuteronomy 1:31 …and in the wilderness, where you have seen how the Lord your God carried you, as a man carries his son, all the way that you went until you came to this place.

  7. Isaiah 63:9 In all their affliction he was afflicted, and the angel of his presence saved them; in his love and in his pity he redeemed them; he lifted them up and carried them all the days of old.

  8. Clarke This is a reference to leading strings, one end of which is held by the child, the other by the nurse, by which the little one, feeling some support, and gaining confidence, endeavours to walk. God, their heavenly Father, made use of every means and method to teach them to walk in the right and only safe path.

  9. John 6:44 No one can come to me unless the Father who sent me draws him. And I will raise him up on the last day.

  10. Spurgeon Understand, then, it is true that no man comes to God except he is drawn; but it is equally true that God draweth no man contrary to the constitution of man, but his methods of drawing are in strict accordance with ordinary mental operations. He finds the human mind what it is, and he acts upon it, not as upon matter, but as upon mind. The compulsions, the constraints, the cords that he uses, are ‘cords of a man.’ The bands he employs are ‘bands of love.’

  11. The Heart of God • The Reality of God’s Love – vv. 1-2 • The Picture of God’s Love – vv. 3-4 • The Penalty for Refusing God’s Love – vv. 5-7

  12. Isaiah 1:19-20 If you are willing and obedient, you shall eat the good of the land; 20 but if you refuse and rebel, you shall be eaten by the sword; for the mouth of the Lord has spoken.”

  13. The Heart of God • The Reality of God’s Love – vv. 1-2 • The Picture of God’s Love – vv. 3-4 • The Penalty for Refusing God’s Love – vv. 5-7 • The Dilemma of God’s Love – vv. 8-9

  14. Brown Yahweh must punish, but he will not exterminate.

  15. The Heart of God • The Reality of God’s Love – vv. 1-2 • The Picture of God’s Love – vv. 3-4 • The Penalty for Refusing God’s Love – vv. 5-7 • The Dilemma of God’s Love – vv. 8-9 • Results of God’s Love – vv. 10-11

  16. “I am God and not a man.” • Man cannot hold back his anger very long • Man cannot bear with others when he is tired, stressed, or annoyed • Man will not reconcile if the person who offended him is a person of bad character • Man is often only willing to be reconciled if the offending party desires forgiveness and makes the first move

  17. “I am God and not a man.” • Man is often only willing to be reconciled if the offending party will never again do the wrong • Man, when he does reconcile, does not lift the former offender to place of high status and partnership • Man, when he is wronged, does not bear all the penalty for the wrong done • Man, when he attempts reconciliation, will not continue if he is rejected

  18. “I am God and not a man.” • Man will not restore an offender without a period of probation • Man will not love, adopt, honor, and associate with one who has wronged him • Man will not trust someone who has formerly wronged them

  19. Spurgeon Suppose that someone had grievously offended any one of you, and that he asked your forgiveness, do you not think that you would probably say to him, ‘Well, yes, I forgive you; but I - I - I - cannot forget it’? Ah! dear friends, that is a sort of forgiveness with one leg chopped off, it is a lame forgiveness, and is not worth much.
