    The love of God is the same for His people (Old Testament) and for His children (New Testament). The difference is in the relationship. Prior to the coming of Christ individuals were known only as the people of God (Jud 20:2; 2 Sam 14:13; Heb 11:25) but now, believers are not only people of God (Heb 4:9; 2 Pet 2:10) but also “sons (and daughters) of God.” This is why the phrase “the children of God” is not used in Scripture prior to Christ and is first used by the Lord Jesus in Matthew 5:9.

    "I ascend unto My Father, and your Father; and to My God, and your God" (John 20:17).
