Melissa preached from Zechariah 8:1-8. The passage begins with Zechariah prophesying of God’s jealousy. We tend to use the words jealousy, envy and coveting all interchangeably, but in the Bible there are important subtleties. Envy comes from emptiness. Jealousy comes from being full.
God doesn’t want other things. God wants you. God’s jealous love is for all of us.
