2:29 Why do you contend with me?

2:30 In vain I have disciplined you (Heb 12:6)

2:31 Heed My word

Why say “we are free to roam”

what is t rue freedom
What is True Freedom?
  • Many believers declare: we are free
  • What are we set free from?
    • Sin, world, corruption, self
  • Why are we free? To do His will
    • To be His bondslaves, slaves of righteousness
  • Today many misunderstand this freedom
  • Abuse it for self: interest & pleasure

Jeremiah’s Sorrow

Jeremiah 8:18-9:1

  • Lord’s burden had become his burden
  • Embodiment of sorrow of God’s love
  • True power of a man of God
    • Not a mere channel/pipeline
    • But one who has the heart/desire of His Master
  • Difficulties/trials train servants of Lord
    • Paul/Joseph: prison John: Isle of Patmos
jeremiah s persecution
Jeremiah’s Persecution

Jeremiah now trained through persecution

11:1Faithful messenger of Lord

11:18 Persecution from home town

Lord defends him and brings it to light

Not rare to be persecuted by close ones

David: Psalm 55: 12-14

Jesus: Came to His own; own received Him not

jeremiah s response
Jeremiah’s Response

12:1 He cries out to the Lord & Lord responds

12:5 If you have run with footmen and they have tired you out, Then how can you compete with horses? If you fall down in a land of peace, How will you do in the thicket of the Jordan?

deeper training
Deeper Training
  • Jer 15:17 Loneliness
    • Is the Lord enough for us?
  • Jer 16:2 No wife or children
    • Denying self of God ordained blessing
    • Luke 2: Anna's fasting for God’s interest
jeremiah faithful servant
Jeremiah: Faithful Servant
  • Jeremiah was faithful in spite of:
    • An unpopular message
    • A rejected message
    • An unfulfilled message
      • Saw captivity but not return

Can we stay faithful when rejected and

do not see much fruit?

longsuffering love of god
Longsuffering Love of God

In Jeremiah we see longsuffering love

9 times one phrase used

7:13 And now, because you have done all these things, declares the LORD, and I spoke to you, rising up early and speaking, but you did not hear, and I called you but you did not answer

(7:25; 11:7; 25:3-4; 26:5; 29:19; 32:33; 35;14-15; 44:4)

the comfort of his m inistry
The Comfort of His Ministry

Jeremiah 30-31

  • God is a God of Hope
  • Yes, He will tear down but He will recover
  • Key phrase: “I Will”
  • What a glorious hope Israel was given
  • Sadly only few responded

How will we respond in this hour?
