Jealous God

Exodus 34:14 NKJV for you shall worship no other god, for the Lord, whose name is Jealous, is a jealous God

There is a righteous jealousy that God possesses in truth because He alone Is God and there is no other. It is right, therefore, for Him to be jealous of all the other (lower case) gods that try to steal His children from Him. God wants what is rightfully His. God wants our full devotion and worship. He is right to be jealous of it because we are His.

The following explains the difference of right jealousy vs wrong jealousy.

Perhaps a practical example will help us understand the difference. If a husband sees another man flirting with his wife, he is right to be jealous, for only he has the right to flirt with his wife. This type of jealousy is not sinful. Rather, it is entirely appropriate. Being jealous for something that God declares to belong to you is good and appropriate. Jealousy is a sin when it is a desire for something that does not belong to you. Worship, praise, honor, and adoration belong to God alone, for only He is truly worthy of it. Therefore, God is rightly jealous when worship, praise, honor, or adoration is given to idols. This is precisely the jealousy the apostle Paul described in 2 Corinthians 11:2, “I am jealous for you with a godly jealousy…”

Father God,

We thank You for the gift of love that You gave us on Calvary. What great love You have for humanity. Thank You for loving us so much. We cannot even imagine what You went through for us. You gave us free will to choose You or not. We have chosen You Lord. You are the One and Only True God. We bow down before You. We worship and adore You. Thank You for showing this protective name of Yours to us. Surely our hearts are lifted to know of Your great love. Help us to never place anyone or anything above You. In Jesus’ name we pray. Amen.
