The aim of my brief thoughts from the book of Jeremiah in the Old Testament is to stimulate you to read the book for yourself and perhaps re-listen to our recent sermon series in the book. The one that includes the verses I have used today was preached on 10th November 2019 by Mark Ventham and the link is below.
‘Announce this to the descendants of Jacob and proclaim it in Judah: Hear this, you foolish and senseless people, who have eyes but do not see, who have ears but do not hear: Should you not fear me?’ declares the Lord. ‘Should you not tremble in my presence? I made the sand a boundary for the sea, an everlasting barrier it cannot cross. The waves may roll, but they cannot prevail; they may roar, but they cannot cross it.But these people have stubborn and rebellious hearts; they have turned aside and gone away. They do not say to themselves, “Let us fear the Lord our God, who gives autumn and spring rains in season, who assures us of the regular weeks of harvest.”Your wrong doings have kept these away; your sins have deprived you of good. Jeremiah 5 vs. 20 – 25
