At Christ Church we have recently completed a long series in the Old Testament book of Jeremiah which began last October. This thought is the fourth of some edited highlights from the series with some ideas of my own. If after listening to this brief thought why not check out Graham’s sermon preached way back on October 27th 2019 to get the full story.
“Return, faithless Israel,” declares the Lord,
“I will frown on you no longer,
for I am merciful,” declares the Lord,
“I will not be angry for ever.
Only acknowledge your guilt –
you have rebelled against the Lord your God,
you have scattered your favours to foreign gods
under every spreading tree,
and have not obeyed me,”’
declares the Lord.
‘Return, faithless people,’ declares the Lord, ‘for I am your husband. I will choose you – one from a town and two from a clan – and bring you to Zion.”
