Why is God a Jealous God?

When we use the word “jealous,” we use it in the sense of being envious of someone who has something we do not have.

In Exodus 20:5, it is not that God is jealous or envious because someone has something He wants or needs. Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them: for I the Lord thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me;

Notice that God is jealous when someone gives to another something that rightly belongs to Him.

God is rightly jealous when worship, praise, honor, or adoration is given to idols.

For I am jealous over you with godly jealousy: for I have espoused you to one husband, that I may present you as a chaste virgin to Christ. -2 Corinthians 11:2

Why Does God Love Us?

This short question is among the most profound questions ever asked. And no human would ever be able to answer it sufficiently. One thing is certain, however. God does not love us because we are lovable or because we deserve His love.

The Bible tells us that "God is Love" (1 John 4:8).

God is Love: It's Unconditional
God is Love, and His love is very different from human love. God's love is unconditional, and it's not based on feelings or emotions. He doesn't love us because we're lovable or because we make Him feel good; He loves us because He is love. He created us to have a loving relationship with Him, and He sacrificed His own Son (who also willingly died for us) to restore that relationship.

God promised new life in Christ. Salvation is the beginning of a brand-new existence.

Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new. -2 Corinthians 5:17
