👉 Jeremiah had a message for the people and it wasn’t a very pleasant or popular one.
Jerusalem was going to burn and there was no escaping it.
👉 Jeremiah is:
- falsely accused of desertion
- put in a dungeon for many days
- in fear for his life
- called to the king’s house
- asked for a word from the Lord
- bravely and faithfully relayed the same message again
To bravely carry on in the face of persecution and rejection. To be faithful in the face of fear.
Lord, give us the courage to stand firm and to be obedient no matter what opposition may come.
You are loved.
