Hey, friends! We hope this happy little announcement is a sweet “Keep going!” in the middle of your Monday. All of us at #SRThq are cheering you on as you wrap up summer and step into what’s next. As schedules and seasons change, God’s Word remains constant, and we hope you’ll continue joining us in reading Truth.
We’ve got some exciting things coming up in the SRT community—but don’t worry, we’ve done all of the planning and checked the to-do’s off the list, so all you have to do is meet us in God’s Word!
To refresh your memory, here’s what’s up next:
Ruth: Fields of Provision: August 1-14 (This is our current plan—jump in here!)
Mark: The Pedestrian Gospel: August 15-September 4
And today, we’re here to announce what we’ll be reading in September—Hosea: God’s Unrelenting Love.
From September 5-25, we’ll take three weeks to read about God’s pursuit of His people.
The book of Hosea compares the relationship between God and His people to the real-life marriage of Hosea and his wife, Gomer. Like a marriage partner, God is deeply involved in our lives and is pained when we go our own way. Often God’s people have failed to demonstrate steadfast love and faithfulness to Him, but He stands ready to forgive and restore those who turn to Him in repentance.
Theologian Thomas Chalmers once preached that our “misplaced affections need to be replaced by the far greater power of the affection of the gospel.” This is our prayer as we explore the book of Hosea together—that we would see the beauty of Jesus, uncover and repent of the sin that binds us, and surrender once again to His perfect love.
Hosea has become a staple in the #SheReadsTruth community, filled with truths we want to revisit over and over again. If you’ve been a “She” who Reads Truth for a while, you may remember the first time we studied Hosea in 2014. We all loved that plan so much that we decided to do it again—this time, with new supplementary scriptures, new written commentary (with a few favorites sprinkled in!), and, of course, a gorgeous new study book available now at ShopSheReadsTruth.com.
