God Is Jealous For Us!

God Is Jealous For Us!


God is jealous for us in a way

that is godly.

But, we often get entangled

with vanity and folly.


H e wants to present us as a

 faithful virgin.

He promised us to Jesus, our

 true husband.


This what Paul the apostle

long ago said.

He doesn’t want anyone to be

 “spiritually dead.”


This important scripture speaks

to all of us.

Christ is our husband and wants

 to be with us!


May we seek a life not burdened

down with sin.

May we know what it means to



To Christ, may we be as a virgin to

be presentable.

And live a life for Christ that is holy

and presentable!


May our life be changed by your word

 this very hour

As we seek Christ’ love and soul

cleansing power!

2 Cor. 11:2   “ I am jealous for you with a godly jealousy. I promised you to one husband, to Christ, so that I might present you as a pure virgin to him.”

About the Poet
I and my wife have 4 grown children and currently live in the Pacific Northwest. I've spent much of my life doing volunteer work in the food distribution for the needy among local churches. Many of the poems I've written are a reflection of times of adversity as a reminder of God's love and faithfulness. I've found many opportunities to share my poems with those who are hurting and discouraged. I'm thankful for the reports of many of the poems touching people's lives. I hope that the poems included on Wordchimes will touch and bless your life too!
