Faithful love in action

The Hebrew word Hesed is a “sticky” love, the idea of faithful love in action. The Old Testament refers to God's lovingkindness expressed in His covenant relationship with Israel.

Through hesed, we see the character of God on display, His commitment to us, and the priority He places on relationship with His children. God’s character exemplifies attachment—that deep emotional bond that cannot be broken.

Attachment to God gives place to healthy attachment to others, fulfilling a calling that is hard-wired into the fabric of what it means to be human, as well as Christian:

“Your love (Hesed/attached/sticky love) for one another will prove to the world that you are my disciples.” John 13:35 NLT
