Jeremiah the prophet

Today the sermon was over Jeremiah. It’s funny, I’ve read the Bible several times, and yet, I know very little about the prophets. Maybe, I’m not actually paying attention while reading. Or maybe I need more directed study.

Pastor Sandy pointed out, (Jer. 1, Isaiah 6, Exodus 3) that no one is ever excited to get the call to be a prophet. “No one says ‘Yes, I’ve been preparing for this for years. I’m gonna rock this gig!'”

Also being a prophet is a horrible job. (Jer 20:7-9)

And, as a bonus, the lyrics of the song I played d’jmbay for with the choir “God gives us a future with hope” is from the text (Jer 29:10).

Wait…have I mentioned that I played with the Church Choir?
