David Jeremiah Devotional 10th January 2023 MESSAGE

Two words summarize the love of God in the Old and New Testaments. The New Testament word is agape—the unconditional, unmerited love of God. The Old Testament word is hesed—usually translated “lovingkindness” or “mercy,” but more literally thought of as “loyal love.” Agape and hesed are like two sides of the same love-coin. If love is loyal, it cannot be cancelled which means it is unconditional. God’s love cannot be earned or negated; it is merciful and loyal.

The greatest story of God’s unconditional and loyal love in the Old Testament is the story of Hosea, in which hesed occurs 6 times. (It occurs nearly 250 times in the entire Old Testament, primarily referring to God’s loyal love for Israel.) Hosea’s unconditional love for his wayward wife, Gomer, was a picture for Israel of God’s forever love for His chosen people: “I will betroth you to Me forever…in lovingkindness [hesed] and mercy” (Hosea 2:19).

God loves you today unconditionally and loyally. Even if you are unfaithful, “He remains faithful” (2 Timothy 2:13). If you have fallen or been unfaithful, take heart: God is faithful to love and forgive.

God’s faithfulness means that God will always do what He has said and fulfill what He has promised. Wayne Grudem
