The Jealous and Forgiving God


Related image

Today’s combinations of Bible readings presence God’s plan of salvation. God is indeed a jealous God. That means he holds our self-destructive wanderings jealously(demanding exclusive devotion; intolerant of rivalry). Though God’s nature is intolerant, he allows forgiveness for our transgressions through our repenting(to change our course of life).

Both of these concepts can take a negative bent, but that is a perversion of thought. God is jealous, but not envious, because He holds all things in His hands.

Our natural view of life tries to make God responsible for anything that doesn’t seem to work out right. We assumes we know all of God’s knowledge, which makes us the most stupid of all mortals.
