God Is Jealous

There is nothing, and no-one, like God. He is holy – unique, one-of-a-kind. And he should be, and must be, known like this. He will not allow his significance (his glory) be given to another, or any other thing. In this sense, God made the world, and placed humans in the world bearing his image, to declare this truth to the universe. As humans sinned, God committed through the family of Abraham to restore his significance through the world. This is at the heart of his saving of his people from Egypt. This is at the heart of making his covenant with his now-saved people at Mount Sinai. This is at the heart of his commandments which enable his people to represent him to the world. And this is at the heart of the attribute of ‘jealousy’ – God is passionate for his covenantal relationship with his people, because it declares his significance to the world. When God’s people aren’t so passionate, so wholehearted, so devoted, then what are they saying about their God?
