God Is Jealous He wants nothing to be BEFORE HIM. Exo. 20:5 He wants to be glorified in all things. Lev. 10:1-3; Jn. 15:8 He wants His will – not yours – to be done. Cp. Gal. 2:20; Rom. 6 (v. 6) NOTE: If you think that sounds selfish (not selfless), consider the following…
Reasons God Is Jealous For You! His FULL DESIRE is to have fellowship with His crowning creation. Rom. 8:31-39 So, from the beginning He sovereignly reveals His will to accomplish His desire. Eph. 3:8-11 The pinnacle of this fellowship is seen through selflessness! 1 Jn. 3:16; Phil. 2:5ff He doesnt want Satan taking away that which belongs to Him!
