Bought with a Price (Video and Sketchnotes from Hosea 1:3-5)

bought with a price

I’ve recently started sketchnoting, for taking sermon notes. Since I’m new to this, I’m starting with some short sermons. Here’s a short sermon I found on YouTube on Hosea and Gomer, along with my sketchnotes.

bought with a price

There were a couple of things that stood out to me the most. First, if you’re not familiar with the story, God asked Hosea to do the unthinkable – take Gomer, a prostitute, to be his wife. Initially things went well, but eventually Gomer went back to her old way of life. God commanded Hosea to “go out and find her again.” So he did. When he got there, he essentially paid to be with her — even though she was already his.

A great point from this message is that he bought her not to use her, but to love her.

This is a great illustration of the love the Lord has for us. While we were still sinners, while we were in rebellion, while we chased after other gods, he bought us – not to abuse us, but to love us.

By the way, I’m adding my sermon sketchnotes and other Christian doodle art, Bible journaling, etc. images to Instagram, so be sure to follow us there:
