Today you should read: Jeremiah 43
Today’s scripture is a great reminder that when we speak the Word of the Lord, often people won’t listen.
Jeremiah is telling the exiles the purpose of why God is sending him and they are rejecting his message from the Lord. Often we are rejected in what we say from the Bible—truths we are to not only live out but share with others. As one who feels called to preach the Word of God and share the Gospel along with all other Christians, this should break our hearts. We don’t need to be discouraged knowing this but instead prepared. We must be obedient in sharing such truths and be reminded that His word does not return back void as promised in Isaiah.
God has a great purpose in such rejections and even if we don’t know this side of heaven who will receive it, we can trust that seeds are being planted along the way of some who will reject it. And in the end, we must be obedient.
Besides if it wasn’t for those before us who shared the Word of the Lord to us, we wouldn’t have received it ourselves.
