May 24, 2014- Jeremiah 18
The Potter and the Clay
“And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.1 Corinthians 13:13
Chapter 18, “God’s power over his creatures is represented by the potter. (1-10) The Jews exhorted to repentance, and judgments foretold. (11-17) The prophet appeals to God. (18-23)” – Matthew Henry Concise
Today we prayerfully continue our Feast reading the book of Jeremiah Chapter 18. God shows Jeremiah His relationship to His creation (see Jeremiah 18:1-10) in a visit to the potter working the clay. God warns the sinners in Judah and Jerusalem that their wicked ways (see Jeremiah 18:11-17) will bring destruction on them. As a nation we need to turn to God in prayer with repentance (see 2 Chronicles 7:14) if we want God to heal our lands. Jeremiah calls on God’s chosen people to turn from their wicked ways and ask God to forgive them (see Jeremiah 18:18-23) instead they stubbornly deny God and attack the prophet. “23 Yet you, O Lord, know all their plotting to kill me. Forgive not their iniquity, nor blot out their sin from your sight. Let them be overthrown before you; deal with them in the time of your anger.“ Jeremiah 18:23 English Standard Versions (ESV). Though God’s only requirement for salvation is to turn from that which destroys us and ask forgiveness in Jesus name (see John 3:19) many people would rather deny the existence of God. Saints we must reach out in love to those who are lost remembering that (see 2 Peter 3:9) Jesus isn’t willing that any should perish. “Love one another with brotherly affection. Outdo one another in showing honor.” Romans 12:10 ESV. God does not tolerate hatred toward the sinner (see 1 Corinthians 13:1-3) so as ambassadors for Christ we are to reach out in love! We must never compromise (see 2 Timothy 4:3) the Word of God to accommodate sin of any kind.
