“Following Jesus and Loving People”


One morning this week I was at Fairmount park praying. The skies were overcast and threatening. Suddenly, the heavens opened in the midst of the dark clouds and a wonderful ray of sunlight lighted up “my world”. My mind traveled to Jeremiah and the dark days he faced. Most of God’s people had “lost their Bible” and were shamelessly running after evil. God loved them, but warned, “I will enslave you to your enemies in a land you do not know, for my anger will kindle a fire that will burn against you” (Jeremiah 15:14). Jeremiah’s heart broke for the people and the coming judgment. Then, in the midst of his tears, a “sunshine ray” from God burst through the clouds! Jeremiah declared, “When your words came, I ate them; they were my joy and my heart’s delight, for I bear your name, O Lord God Almighty. I never sat in the company of revelers, never made merry with them; I sat alone because your hand was on me…(Jere. 15:16-17).

So, here we see the secret of Jeremiah’s perseverance in difficult times. He separated himself from sin and found his delight in the Lord and his Word. Instead of partying with the wicked (like the majority) he willingly found his pleasure in God, specifically in God’s Word. I don’t have to be a prophet to tell you dark clouds have gathered over our country. Each day seems to reveal increasingly more bizarre evil. Yet, instead of    compromising our morals or becoming critical and reclusive, we can find the joy of the Lord as our strength. The question is, “are we willing to feed on God’s Word?” Those who will avoid being swept up in the tsunami of sin in these last days will learn to fix their minds on Jesus and love him enough to saturate themselves daily in the Word. May our motto be “every day in the Word!”

Please pray for our church and community as we begin a four week Sunday morning series at Highway entitled, “How the Bible can Change your Life!”
