One of God’s attributes is Godly Jealousy. Often when we think of jealousy we think of human sinful jealousy where love can turn into hate, like Saul hated David. God’s jealousy continues to love no matter how far we drift from Him. When we believers create idols in our heart, God is jealous enough of us that He will come after us, or intervene in the affairs of our lives to draw us back unto Himself. The Bible uses the metaphor that we can be HIs bride. In fact the entire book of Song of Solomon is about the believers relationship with God using the metaphor of the Bridegroom and the Bride. We should mature in our relationship with God to where we live faithful to Him and committed to Him like a faithful wife.
