First of all, God is the same. He is unchanging; the same yesterday, today, and forever. However, many people (mistakenly) see God in the Old Testament as vengeful, lacking in love and mercy. They contrast Him with Jesus, the compassionate Lamb.
But God in the Old Testament is just as beautiful. He is still a Father who loves His children and gives them His best. He cares for them.
The Beautiful Love of the Old Testament God
- is lavish
- is unfailing
- is present in the wilderness
- manifests in daily provision
- leads clearly without confusion
- delivers from slavery and oppression
- gives good things
- cares about our character
- fulfills His purpose
Let’s go through the first several chapters of Deuteronomy together and see His love clearly.
