Bible Passage: Hosea 1:3-2:1
What’s in a name? This is famously asked by Juliet regarding her beloved Romeo. The insinuation is he would be the same person if he were not a “Montague.” In other words, a name means nothing. Yet, this week’s passage has a different answer to that question. What’s in a name? Everything! It has everything to do with this story in Hosea. And it has everything to do with the church. Truly, there is a name which is unlike any other name. It means everything!
