The Hebrew Nation was rescued from slavery by God, yet they continued
to worship idols. In the same way, we have been rescued from a life of
the bondage to sin yet we often return to that sin. When we praise
idols, we create God jealousy. But God jealousy is different from human
jealousy. God lacks nothing. God jealousy is passion in
action. When we turn from our idols and back to the living God we find
find ultimate freedom.
