eremiah had a mission: to deliver a message to people who didn’t always want to hear it.
Are you ever like the people who received Jeremiah’s message and didn’t want to hear it? Are there verses in the Bible that you don’t like to read? Those that particularly talk about sin? If we are honest, we can all say that there are certain messages in the Bible that we do not like to hear. Those who tell us to love our enemies, to obey our parents, that lying is a sin and that it does not please God, etc. There are several. We must understand that these messages, what is written in the Bible, are there for our good and not to harm us.
Just like Jeremiah who was determined to say the message that God had given him, we too must have the same determination to receive this message and put it into practice. If we want to look like the Father, we must have an open heart, ready to receive his instructions, whether we like them or not. Have you decided like Jeremiah to obey the Father and to be like Him?
“Father, I want to be obedient, but it is not always easy to obey, I need your help. Give me the desire to obey you and obey your Word, to make you the first in my life and to live for you. I love you. Amen.”
