Christ’s jealousy

(9/28) |

Verses:2_Corinthians 11:1 ~ 11:15
Key Verse:2-3. For I am jealous over you with a jealousy of God; for I betrothed you to one husband to present you as a pure virgin to Christ. But I fear lest somehow, as the serpent deceived Eve by his craftiness, your thoughts would be corrupted from the simplicity and the purity toward Christ.
Topic:Christ’s jealousy
Emphasis:There are many relationships between God and us, such as father and son, friend, master and servant, husband and wife. Among all these the Marital relationship is the most intimate one. “Another Jesus”, “receiving a different spirit” or “receiving a different gospel” are not just heretic teachings but they distort Christ’s person and work, which corrupts the faith and makes the saints lost their simplicity to Christ. Thus, the apostles seriously warned us.
Meditate:The Old Testament repeatedly mentioned “God’s jealousy”. Exodus 20:5, 34:14; Deuteronomy 4:24, 6:15; Joshua 24:19
Prayer:Please preserve me so I would not provoke Your jealousy and let me remain in the sweet fellowship with You.
Hymn:626 Olives that have known no pressure
