Lenten Reflection for Sun 2/24/2013

Psalm am: 24, 29
pm: 8, 84 Jeremiah 1:1-10
1 Corinthians 3:11-23 Mark 3:31-4:9

While Jeremiah was still in his mother’s womb the Lord ordained him to be a prophet.  —-Jeremiah 1:1-10

At an early age, Jeremiah knew that he was called to be a prophet. But, because he was so young, he felt inadequate to fulfill his destiny. He struggled with this,yet the Lord told him to go and preach repentance and proclaim God’s love for them. God told him that He would put His words in his mouth and He would go with him whenever he spoke. He had to preach harsh and difficult messages and he did so through tears. As a result of his compassion for the people and his love for the Lord, Jeremiah became known as the “weeping prophet.”
Jeremiah was obedient and he preached to the nations. Many times he delivered his message with a heavy heart because the message grieved his spirit and he felt that it also grieved the Lord’s spirit. However, when the Lord called Jeremiah for this ministry, He also gave him a gift – “The Gift of His Presence.”
