Read this article if you get a chance. It’s a really great biblical explanation of the Hebrew word Hesed, meaning steadfast lovingkindness.
I was first exposed to this word through a sermon my pastor did on the book of Ruth and have been enamored by its meaning and by what it says about God’s character ever since then!! He has always had a plan, since the very moment we fell into sin, to provide redemption for us because of this Hesed love He has for us! This is how I know that my God is real! What other religion serves a God like this? One who, despite His people’s constant sin against Him, still loves them with an eternal and unchanging love that allows Him to pardon them of the punishment they so rightly deserve. There is no other God like Him!
