"Jealous Kind"

I was going through my ipod to try and find something to listen to and thought I would shuffle all the songs by Jars of Clay. I hadn't listened to them in a really long time, after a couple of songs "Jealous Kind" came on which made me pause and think. This song is so good and it reminds me of how much God loves me and how much he hates sin. It is such an insult for us to chose sin over Jesus who loves us so much. Here are the lyrics, also here is the song from last.fm take a listen.

"Jealous Kind" by Jars of Clay
I built another temple to a stranger
I gave away my heart to the rushing wind
I set my course to run right into danger
Sought the company of fools instead of friends

You know I've been unfaithful
Lovers in lines
While you're turning over tables with the rage of a jealous kind
I chose the gallows to the aisle
Thought that love would never find
Hanging ropes will never keep you
And your love of a jealous kind
Love of a jealous kind

Trying to jump away from rock that keeps on spreading
For solace in the shift of the sinking sand
I'd rather feel the pain all too familiar
Than to be broken by a lover I don't understand
'Cause I don't understand

One hundred other lovers, more, one hundred other altars
If I should slow my pace and finally subject me to grace
And love that shames the wise, betrays the heart's deceit and lies
And breaks the back of foolish pride
