Sermons on Jeremiah
The time of Elijah was very different than now, but humans are not so different. We need to know who God is and who we are. Ask God to help us identify our idols and take them to task.
Bible Reading Jeremiah 15:16Matthew 4:42 Timothy 3:16-17Hebrews 4:12John 17:17
“If anyone thirsts…” In John chapter 7, Jesus makes another “I am” statement. He says he is the “living water.” As we look at our own lives we should ask ourselves what we thirst for, and if we are coming to Jesus to quench that thirst.
Do you see people the way Jesus saw people? Do you find yourself looking to something or someone other than God to quench you spiritual thirst? Do you represent Jesus in fullness of grace and truth? Jesus portrayed the fullness of grace and truth, not a balance of the two, and it is important to understand the difference between these two ideas. We should be passionate because of experiencing Jesus.
God tells the Israelites to seek the welfare of the city when they were exiled to Babylon. For he knows the plans for them, to prosper them. In a similar way we should seek the welfare of out city. Though we are exiles in this land and a culture separate from this culture. Have an impact.
Overcome the obstacles to faith. God is bigger than your fears. God is bigger than all of your sins. File Chapter 11 on your fears, your pride, your sin and receive the grace He offers.
