The end of our look at Hosea as the introduction to the Book of Twelve will be to draw the message of this prophet to the fore. One overriding message of this book is the utter necessity to "walk on" in faithfulness to God in all circumstances of life. That message is captured as well as anything I know by U2's song "Walk On" from their "All That You Can't Leave Behind" album.
Listen reflectively and prayerfully and mull the message of Hosea. Peace.
