The Prophet’s Pen

The Lord forbad Jeremiah to marry, intended to shock the people into awareness of the coming disaster of exile that would come upon them, if they failed to repent. God did not want children to be brought into such a world.

Sometimes we hear that from parents about today’s world. The way you live points others to the reality of God’s presence to them. When the Lord calls persons to celibacy it is to witness to the absolute sufficiency of Christ in one’s life.

Chapter 17 is a blending of verses that will remind you of the Psalms and the Book of Proverbs. Read Jeremiah slowly here, as the prophet etches the power of his pen upon your heart. Embrace these words, which will be food for you this day that the Lord has made. Does the Lord invite you to write?
