Jeremiah 25

Verse of the Day: V6 “And go not after other gods to serve them, and to worship them, and provoke me not to anger with the works of your hands; and I will do you no hurt."

1.  Rely not on other gods

V6 “And go not after other gods to serve them, and to worship them, ...”

Other gods are people or things that take the place of the true and living God. God creates us and He knows all about us. Only God can fulfill the purpose of our existence and gives us complete joy and satisfaction in our lives. Yet man serves and worships other gods such as their families, careers, sports, hobbies, etc., instead of God. There is nothing wrong with loving our families, careers, sports, hobbies, etc., but if these things take the first place of our lives instead of God, then we have provoked God and incurred His anger. These other gods can never take the place of the true and living God as they shall fail us. Only God and God alone shall never fail us.

Matthew 6:33 “But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and His righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.”

2.  Rely not on self

V6 “And go not after other gods to serve them, and to worship them, and provoke me not to anger with the works of your hands; ...”

Not only shall other gods fail us even we shall fail ourselves. People reject God thinking that they are gods themselves and rely on the works of their own hands. They think that their success is due to their own capabilities, knowledge and competence and they fail to realize that it is God, their Creator, who gives them everything including the breath of life!

Romans 1:25 “Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen.”

3.  Rely only on God 

V6 “And go not after other gods to serve them, and to worship them, and provoke me not to anger with the works of your hands; and I will do you no hurt.”

People may continue to mock at Christians for serving and worshipping God but soon they shall realize that they have been deceived by the devil, and they together with the devil shall be cast into the lake of fire and be tormented forever for rejecting God.

Revelation 20:10 “And the devil that deceived them was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone, where the beast and the false prophet are, and shall be tormented day and night for ever and ever.”

Prayer of the Week

Dearest God, please help me to serve and worship You and You alone.
