The sermon begins around 17 minutes in.
What is it like for God to be heartbroken? We usually don’t think of God that way. God is unmoving, unchangeable, omnipotent – all powerful. But God in this passage in Hosea is heartbroken; God is a spurned lover, God is a cheated-on spouse who is going crazy. It’s a very uncomfortable passage to read.
