Two ways of living

IMG_8664

Representative of the theme of the book, Hosea’s epilogue concludes the prophecy by presenting the reader with two ways of living (compare to Deuteronomy 30:19,20 and Psalm 1).  He appeals to all readers to be wise, to choose the Lord’s way, for His ways are right (compare to Psalm 107:43; Ecclesiastes 12:13,14).

Commentary from the MacArthur study Bible, notes for Hosea 14:9.

Love Fulfills the Law

When a Christian genuinely loves others, he fulfills all the moral requirements of the former Mosaic law concerning them.  This is the ruling principle of Christian freedom.

Commentary from the MacArthur study Bible, notes for Galatians 5:14.

Immeasurable blessings

The recipients of divine grace inherit immeasurable blessings in addition to eternal life and the favor of God.  But those who despise the riches of God’s goodness, forbearance, and longsuffering (Romans 2:4), burying them in the ground and clinging instead to the paltry and transient goods of this world, will ultimately lose everything they have.

Commentary from the MacArthur study Bible, notes for Matthew 25:29.
