Jeremiah – “The Way Back Home is Repentance”
July 5th, 5th Sunday after Pentecost, Communion Sunday
“The Way Back Home is Repentance” Jeremiah 3:6-24
Speaking to Jeremiah, God paints a vivid picture of what he feels as his chosen people are unfaithful to him. It is sobering to think that God may feel this way as we commit our personal sins, let alone as our nation as a whole is struggling with social problems. In spite of God’s disgust and disappointment, he draws up a plan for renewal and reconciliation; the foundation of this plan is repentance.
