Today marks the 6th day I been in New York City and nothing can prepare me for the anticipation of controlled chaos of students arriving into the city. I got my assignments of when to meet my disciples as they arrive to check in at Herald Square. I felt like every hour interval I would check my clock to expect one of my student to give me a call. But after the end of the day, Joseph,Jonathan, and Caleb all arrived with no trouble in that exact order.
Hebrews word “Hesed” means “everlasting love and kindness” Psalm 136:1
“Oh give thanks unto the Lord; For He is good; For his mercy endures forever.”
The word ELEOS is either “mercy” or “compassion.”
The use of HESED describes a mutual relationship between man and between God. Translating it as ‘mercy’, ‘compassion’, or ‘love’.
HESED used to describe the actions of God in Psalm 136
1) redemption of Israel from its enemies and troubles
2) preservation of life from death
3) quickening of spiritual life
4) redemption from sin
5) keeping the covenants
Tomorrow we will be going out into the city with our students on a little scavanger hunt after a crash course in "how to use the subway". I wonder what God has in store for us to see and do tomorrow.
