When Obedience Has a Price

As we continue we see that Jeremiah was doing exactly what God told him to do, and as a result he was soundly beaten and left all night in the stocks.  This would have been very painful and humiliating for Jeremiah.  It should come as no surprise to us that sometimes, the direct result of obeying God is personal difficulty and discomfort.  It was true for the prophets, it was true for the disciples and early church, and it is still true today.

Refreshing Our Trust In God

Are we just as much at risk in our day of subtly transferring and gradually misplacing our trust onto things, ideas, or people other than God? In what ways are we at risk of pursuing things other than God that we deeply believe will make life work for us.

When Discouragement Descends

We acknowledged last week that discouragement descends on each of us at one time or another. And, as you all know…once discouragement descends on us, it can take some time to recover from it. And that was true for Jeremiah. Our message today is a kind of sequel to last week. As we hear more from Jeremiah’s discouraged heart, and hear God’s response we get the opportunity to learn some additional strategies that can help dissolve discouragement when it descends on us.

When The Godless Thrive

It has been said that discouragement is a disease unique to human beings, and it's universal -- eventually everyone gets it, including those in church ministry. I have no doubt you've experienced discouragement at times, maybe many times. You might even be discouraged at this very moment. Today we see Jeremiah in the space of deep discouragement for this very reason. And so we get a chance to learn from his interaction with God how we can take heart, when the godless thrive.

The Loving Gift of Confession and Repentance

This week we see God lamenting over his people because despite his openhearted invitations to restore the relationship and giving them multiple opportunities to return in sincere confession and honest repentance, they refuse! This stubborn refusal requires God to make the unnecessary pain of discipline, necessary for them.

The Case Of A Jilted Lover

God begins to present his case by having a heart to heart with the people. Their rejection of him has wounded his heart. But he tries to help them see that jilting him in the relationship doesn’t just wound him…in the end they will be the most wounded. They will be alone, helpless, and hopeless. God starts with reminiscing of good times when he and Israel were intimately connected together.

God’s Call Supersedes Our Limitations

Today we begin a new series examining the writings of the great prophet Jeremiah. We are going to journey with Jeremiah as he calls God’s people to responsibility and realignment with God’s will and plan for their lives. Because of his great love for them, God uses the prophet Jeremiah to firmly and passionately call them to responsibility in their relationships with him. God gives Jeremiah some tough, tough warnings to deliver to the people, sternly notifying them of the pain they invite into their lives when they stiff arm God’s faithful love.
