Sermon Series – The Book of Jeremiah: This series will consider selected chapters from the book of Jeremiah. Jeremiah is invited by God to be a prophet who “plucks up and breaks down.” A prophet who “destroys and overthrows.” A prophet who “builds up and plants.” Our series will seek to do a little bit of all of that. Through it all, we will, of course, consider how this book points us to Jesus.
Reading: Jeremiah 11:1-17
Jeremiah has an emphatic “yes” in verse 5. He’s saying yes to God’s job for him (to go and preach to ALL the people of God.) He’s also saying yes to the covenant that God has made. Yes to the terms – what he is supposed to do. Yes to the blessings. Yes to the curses. Today we are challenged: are we saying yes to Jesus? We also get encouraged, because someone (very important person) says yes to us…everyday. Without fail.
Peace, Pastor Dave
