Justice and Mercy



The destruction of the nation, the capital city including the royal family, and the temple with its priesthood was the darkest moment thus far in the history of the descendants. Jeremiah saw it all happen before his eyes. Worse yet, he had faithfully warned and pleaded with the people to turn from their rebellion and turn toward God, but to no avail. Yet he endured their punishment along with them, though not a partaker in their sins. The Lamentations is his poem of grief for God’s people and to remind them that it is not yet too late to come back to God. It’s not too late to hope in God.

Know the LORD now



Do you have some extra time on your hands or busier than ever?  Either way, now is the time to make this a priority.  Whatever else we may think is important, this should be at the top of the list.  Everything else is temporary.  Our relationship with the LORD should be our boast and joy.  Let’s keep making time for Him no matter what else is going on.

God’s plan is good



God had a word of hope for the beleaguered exiles of Jerusalem living in Babylon.  That message of hope and grace is ultimately fulfilled in Christ for us.   We walk through this familiar verse and its surrounding context to understand how our troubling times are not an indication that God has lost control.  Rather, His message to us is that He has a plan to give us hope and confidence beyond our circumstances.
