The Jealousy of God

Article

Many people do not have a problem with a soft “teddy bear” God. However, the moment the words “wrath,” “anger,” or “jealousy” are mentioned, the room grows quiet and hands start fidgeting. All too often, when something is challenging, people give themselves the authority to throw that idea out and create a god that is lesser than the God of the Bible.

Current Sermon Series

The book of Hebrews was written to a people needing endurance. Though they knew the ancient stories of the past, they were tempted to turn away from Jesus in the present. You might identify with them due to current challenges we face. In this series, we will look again and again at how Jesus is greater—greater than our challenges, feelings, pain, anxiety, boredom, apathy, and sin. Never lose sight of the fact that Jesus is greater!
