Summarize what you read in one paragraph: in Jeremiah 26-29 you get to see how the Jews are continuing to be disobedient to God and to the prophets God appoints. In this case Jeremiah. It’s obvious the people do not care about what Jeremiah has to say to them concerning God. They continue to go about what they want to. Through this disobedience you can see God having a plan to humble them out, not just the Jews but the surrounding nations as well. God plans to raise up a mighty country to stand up and rule these other nations (Babylon). With all this going on we see how Jeremiah remains obedient through all the heartache and pain he has witnessed. His love and reverence for God shows.
What is one key verse?
Jeremiah 27:4-7 Give them this message for their masters: ‘This is what the Lord of Heaven’s Armies, the God of Israel, says:With my great strength and powerful arm I made the earth and all its people and every animal. I can give these things of mine to anyone I choose.Now I will give your countries to King Nebuchadnezzar of Babylon.
How does what you read change your vision of God? What it shows me is that God’s ways are not ours. That he has plans for our lives but if we continue to disobey God will punish us because he loves us so much.
How does what you read change your vision of yourself or others? Well it’s easy to point fingers and blame others for whatever. We need to look into our lives and ask am I being disobedient in anyway and if we are how can we change that.
How will you Go With God because of this reading? (What is an action step?) Asking God to show me where it is we lack. Pray about it and then pray about how we can fight it.
Where did you see Jesus in these chapters? (What made you think about Jesus?)
Honestly Jeremiah made me think of Jesus. Jeremiah wasn’t perfect but he was obedient like Christ was obedient. He stood up in the face of fear and Let God lead. In order to be a disciple we have to take a page from Jesus and go with God.
