SUNDAY, AUGUST 7, 2016; Jeremiah 4-6 ~ Kelora

Today's passage from the Bible In a Year Reading Plan is; Jeremiah 4-6

Reading these passages made me feel sad that the Israelites had turned their back on God. God gave them countless opportunities to change their ways and gave them many warnings of what is to come and yet they still did not listen. When reading Jeremiah 5:1 this verse gave me hope for the Israelites and also showed God's grace.  “Go up and down the streets of Jerusalem, look around and consider, search through her squares.  If you can find but one person who deals honestly and seeks the truth, I will forgive this city."

These chapters led me thinking that we can be stubborn in our ways as well and choose to ignore what God wants us to do and that there are consequences for our actions but God still gives us opportunities to change because He truly loves us.

Tomorrow's Bible In a Year Passage:2 Kings 22:3-20, 2 Chronicles 34:8-28, 2 King 23:1-20, 2Chronicles 34:29-33, 2 Kings 23:21-28, 2 Chronicles 35:1-19

It was a rather depressing account. And I imagine it must have been terrifying for the Israelites at the time, unless they were so blinded by their sin that they disregarded it completely.

The truth is, God's judgment is coming, and it is well deserved. The mercy and grace He extends to us is amazing. We must grab hold of it, knowing that we cannot do anything to earn our salvation - it is all Him.
