Jeremiah 7

Verse Of The Day: V23 “But this thing commanded I them, saying, Obey my voice, and I will be your God, and ye shall be my people: and walk ye in all the ways that I have commanded you, that it may be well unto you."

1.  Obedient Life

V23 “But this thing commanded I them, saying, Obey my voice, …”

The prophet Jeremiah lived and preached in the days of the people of God who disobeyed God. Many of them praised and worshipped God in the temple of the LORD, but their hearts were far away from God. They sinned and disobeyed God and their lives were no different from the people of the world. Jeremiah wept and warned them not to lie when they praised God in the beautiful temple while refusing to repent their sins!

V4 “Trust ye not in lying words, saying, The temple of the LORD, The temple of the LORD, The temple of the LORD, are these”

Look around you, and do you see many Christians praising and worshipping God in a beautiful and majestic church building but their lives are no different from the people of the world as they smoke, drink, swear, curse, steal, cheat, deceive and in sins?

2.  Transformed Life

V23 “But this thing commanded I them, saying, Obey my voice, and I will be your God, and ye shall be my people: and walk ye in all the ways that I have commanded you, …”

A durian tree shall bring forth durians and a mango tree shall bring forth mangos and God shall bring forth God’s people! God’s people shall always obey God’s commandments and walk in God’s ways. When you are a true Christian, you shall have a sense of guilt and remorse when you disobey God. You shall seek to repent and return to God and live a transformed and changed life that honors and glorifies God.

3.  Happy Life

V23 “But this thing commanded I them, saying, Obey my voice, and I will be your God, and ye shall be my people: and walk ye in all the ways that I have commanded you, that it may be well unto you.”

An obedient and transformed life shall result in a happy life! You reap whatever you sow. When you sow obedience you shall reap happiness and be well in your life.

Galatians 6:7 “Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap.”

Prayer Of The Week

Dearest God, please help me to sow obedience so that I shall reap happiness.
