The book of Hosea was given by God to identify and rebuke idolatry. In the first chapter he indicts those who give worship to idols and promises that they will be judged. Idolatry is spiritual adultery, as the real life example of Gomer illustrates. We, like Gomer, are unfaithful to our covenant partner. But God gives hope, through Jesus Christ, that we will be able to turn from our idolatry and receive mercy.
