Leading people to Jesus and fully following Him together.
"You shall have no other gods before Me.”

(The first of the 10 Commandments)
“You shall not make for yourself an idol in the form of anything in heaven above or on earth beneath or in the waters below. You shall not bow to them or worship them; for I, the Lord your God, am a jealous God.”

(The second of the 10 Commandments)

Exodus 32:10

“[Leave me alone] is a directive for Moses not to intercede for the people.  The Jewish interpretation is that there is a profound paradox in God’s words.  He vows the severest punishment but then suddenly conditions it on Moses’ agreement.”
God is a jealous God; Don’t try to replace Him.
Consider the jealousy of God…
Jealousy is the angry side of love.
Are there any decisions, priorities or behaviors in my life that should trigger God’s good jealousy?
Am I attempting to replace God with something less?
"The human heart is an idol factory that takes good things like a successful career, love, material possessions, even family, and turns them into ultimate things. Our hearts deify them as the center of our lives, because, we think, they can give us significance and security, safety and fulfillment, if we attain them."

-Timothy Keller, Center Church
My next step with God, THIS WEEK is to…

-- Ask myself: Have I lost sight of God’s holiness? What do I need to do
to get it back?
(Resources: Exodus 19-20; Job 38-41; Isaiah 40; Matthew 5-7; Matt 24-25)

-- Consider: Do I feel comforted or threatened by the jealousy of God?
What does that say about my relationship with Him?
(Resources: James 4:1-10; Romans 8; John 14-15)

-- Keep growing by participating in the next 8-week session of home
groups where we’ll discuss how Sunday’s messages apply to the rest
of our week.
“Fuse with other believers and pursue application of truth together.”

-- I want to get in on this exclusive relationship God wants with me!
(Talk to the friend who invited you here or one of the pastors before you leave today.)
