Mother’s Day “Unconditional Love” 05/08/05


A mother’s love is unconditional, the child does not and cannot earn it, an attachment

The Father’s love is unconditional, and both are sealed in blood

Isaiah 49:13-20 a mother will forget her breast fed child before the Lord forgets Israel

After 70 years in Babylon a remnant returns, nearly 400 years later the Romans are in control, and it looks like the promise of God will never come

Not until 1948 does the promise come true, as a mother will never forget the child at her breast

60,000,000 Arabs will push 600,000 Jews into the Mediterranean, but God does not forget His unconditional love toward His people

Unconditional love is not based on the actions of the other party, as a mother loves her child, apart from anything the child could possibly do or earn

Unconditional love is like the covenant that God cut with Abram, an Unconditional Covenant, one that Abram could not uphold on his own before God

Genesis 24:64-67 and Isaac taking Rebekah to his mother’s tent, Isaac is the Son of Promise, the Promise of unconditional love being fulfilled in anti type with Christ

The Word did not say that he took Rebekah to his father’s tent, for it is the mother’s love that is experienced the most intimately

1 Kings 3:21-28 and Solomon with the 2 woman claiming the one son, the true mother’s unconditional love would rather see the other woman with the child, then to have the boy killed, fleshly love says, “divide the child,” as it is selfish, and if I can’t have the boy, neither will you

Isaiah 54: 8-10 My kindness will not depart, not he covenant of my peace, verse 8 and KINDNESS, CHESED no matter what you do to me, I only what the best for you, from the crown of your head to the soles of your feet, I WILL LOVE YOU, chesed is the Hebrew equivalent of the Greek word agape.

Hesed is a covenant word. Its original use was to denote that attitude of loyalty and faithfulness which both parties to a covenant should maintain toward each other. When the word came to be used predominantly of the Covenant between Jehovah and Israel, it was realized by the prophets that such a covenant could be maintained only by that persistent, determined, steadfast love of God, which transcends every other love by its nature and depth. … The most important of all the distinctive ideas of the Old Testament is God’s steady and extraordinary persistence in continuing to love wayward Israel in spite of Israel’s insistent waywardness.”[1]

The steadfast love of God can only be seen by comparing it in the natural to the love of a mother!!!

From Spurgeon’s devotional, “My Utmost For His Highest,” Canst thou, by humble faith, lay hold of Jesus’ garments, and say, “My Christ”? If thou canst, then God saith of thee, and of others like thee, “My people;” for, if God be your God, and Christ your Christ, the Lord has a special, peculiar favour to you; you are the object of his choice, accepted in his beloved Son.
