Jeremiah 15 – 17
Friday, March 3
Chapters 15-17 deal with the pain others feel for Judah’s continuous betrayal. God feels sadness when we sin. Jeremiah is frustrated and hurt (physically and emotionally) by this sin. Our sins trap us (just like the enemies of Judah) and change us (16:10-13)
Sin has a deep hold on us. But in chapter 17 Jeremiah reminds us that we can repent.
Repentance is explained in Jeremiah 17:5-8. The difference in being blessed or being left with nothing is determined by our trust.
Do you trust God?
Do you believe that He will take care of you and that His way is better than your way?
Sometimes we feel like we can’t come back from our sin but God knows you can if you trust in Him.
Do you want barrenness (vs. 5,6) or blessing (vs.7,8)?
