Godly jealousy, 2 Corinthians 11.2

“For I am jealous for you with godly jealousy, because I promised you in marriage to one husband, to present you as a pure virgin to Christ.”

2 Corinthians 11.2

The apostle Paul’s godly jealousy did everything he could to keep the Corinthians from following a different Jesus or a different doctrine. He wanted a pure, devoted bride.

Human jealousy destroys relationships. Godly jealously seeks to preserve “sincere and pure devotion to Christ” v. 3. It attaches everyone more firmly to Jesus Christ.
