Day 223

Today’s Reading – Jeremiah 14-17

Then the LORD said to me, “Do not pray for the well-being of this people. Although they fast, I will not listen to their cry; though they offer burnt offerings and grain offerings, I will not accept them. Instead, I will destroy them with the sword, famine and plague.” 
Jeremiah 14:11-12

Kansas, sang a song years ago, The Point of No Return. Jeremiah must have been shocked at these words from God … God was done.

God expects those who enter into covenant with Him to take it seriously and be faithful to His demands.

The time for repentance had passes. Judgement was coming.

The good news is that God is not done. He still loves His creation.

A New Covenant is being heralded . . .

A new plan is coming . . .

a new call to faith is coming . . .

Stay tuned . . .

Tomorrow’s Reading – Jeremiah 18-22

Author:

I am a United Methodist Pastor and have the privilege of serving as the Senior Pastor for the church of my childhood. I preach in a place I once was an acolyte. I love to preach, but more importantly I love to teach. I firmly believe that Faith Matters and should affect how we live. This blog is a place where I come to share the randomness that is life and faith ... and the intersection of the two.
