Today’s Reading – Jeremiah 7-9
“‘Hear the word of the LORD, all you people of Judah who come through these gates to worship the LORD. This is what the LORD Almighty, the God of Israel, says: Reform your ways and your actions, and I will let you live in this place. Do not trust in deceptive words and say, “This is the temple of the LORD, the temple of the LORD, the temple of the LORD!”
Jeremiah calls the people out today for their wicked ways. He calls on them to repent. The people have grown complacent in their faith. They believe it doesn’t matter how they live and act – God will take care of them. After all God is Love.
Sounds a lot like the debate that is raging through theological world of book writers telling us Hell isn’t real because God is love.
If Jeremiah was a song writer, he would have written this song long ago. Thanks to Matt Redman for reminding us that we need to return to the Heart of Worship. Thanks to Jeremiah for reminding us to repent and live a life of faith.
