Reading through Hosea, I am reminded again and again how
Israel is a
type for each of us. And, with that
understanding, how much more inspiring are the words that Israel has destroyed itself, but in
the Lord is our help. Each of us is
fully responsible for our own destruction.
Each of us, on a daily basis, do and say the things that damage our
souls beyond our capacity to repair. We
are hopeless, except that our Lord and Savior has made a path open to us. In Him we have help, and no other way.
