Good Morning March 23

Jeremiah was sent to the people of Judah just before and during the time they were being taken captive by the Babylonians. God had continually tried to call His people to turn and come back to Him in faithfulness. “I spoke to you again and again, but you did not listen; I called you, but you did not answer.”(7:13) Finally, Jerusalem was destroyed, and the people removed from their homeland for 70 years. Thirty-three times in the Book of Jeremiah it says that God called the people, but they would not listen. I often feel that we are in that same world. There are so many competing voices today, and the Lord’s truth from His Scripture gets pushed aside. God loves His creation and the people He has made. In His Son, Jesus Christ, He has done all that is necessary to give us life. The voice of our Lord is not just one competing voice in the cacophony or others. It is The Voice that leads to life. We really need to listen.
