Topic: God Scripture: Jeremiah 1
God calls Jeremiah to be the “weeping prophet” over Judah and its fall.
God calls Jeremiah while Jeremiah is still in the womb! Jeremiah 1:4-5
Paul writes in Ephesians 2:10 that God calls us, too. We all have a role to play in God’s unfolding upper story of love and salvation.
Jeremiah made excuses to God that he was not qualified (Jeremiah 1:9-10)
But God promises to help Jeremiah speak and God will be with Jeremiah.
God gives us his Holy Spirit to help us fulfill our role. Jesus promised to be “with us” to the end of the age. Matthew 29:18-20
Jeremiah’s task to call people back, but he will fail, both weeping over Judah’s destruction and offering hope for the future.
1. Jeremiah’s “weeping” is recorded in the Book of Lamentations.
2. Jeremiah’s hope is written in Lamentations 3:21-23
“Great is thy faithfulness.”
Jeremiah moments come to all of us. We must have faith in God's Plan and follow him in all we do.
