The Prophet's Family

By the prophets God spoke to Israel at various times and in various ways (Hebrews 1:1). Look at the way He spoke through the prophet Hosea,
When the LORD began to speak by Hosea, the LORD said to Hosea:
“Go, take yourself a wife of harlotry
And children of harlotry,
For the land has committed great harlotry
By departing from the LORD.”
(Hosea 1:2)
God used the family of Hosea to illustrate the relationship between Israel and God. Israel acted as a wife who turned to harlotry. The names of the children of Hosea would also illustrate the relationship between Israel and God.
If He used you, not your family, but you to illustrate His relationship with the church, what would that say about the relationship?
