Day Twenty-four – הַיּוֹם אַרְבָּעָה וְעֶשְׂרִים לָעֹמֶר
I will betroth you to Me forever; yes, I will betroth you to Me in righteousness and in justice, in lovingkindness and in compassion, and I will betroth you to Me in faithfulness. Then you will know the LORD. Hosea 2:19–20
“…Man and Wife”
Our God views His people as a bride. He desires to join with them in an intimate relationship. The “vows” He makes contain matters of justice, righteousness, lovingkindness, and compassion. His marriage doesn’t have a prenuptial agreement or a divorce clause. His heart is to unite in faithfulness with His people in a true, everlasting relationship with them.
What God has joined together let no man separate.
• How are you bound to me, Lord? How are we as your people bound to You? How do I see You working to keep us and complete Your covenant in and through us?
• How important are wedding vows? How do we show His faithfulness in our relationships? Talk to a friend about the importance of friendship.
• Continue your discussion in Rom 12:1,2 from yesterday. How does today’s key verse communicate God’s desire for intimacy and how does this give us a bigger picture of His will for us?
