Jeremiah and the Lock-In

So nathan brought the message to us last night on jeremiah [the weeping prophet] and the people of israel. Israel had been really backsliding and began to put other things before God and jeremiah had told the people the violence and destruction was going to come out of what they were doing.

I think one of the verses he shared last night should be one we think about this week and try and work on it in our own lives.

"Because from the least of them even to the greatest of them, Everyone is given to covetousness; And from the prophet even to the priest, Everyone deals falsely." Jeremiah 6:13

We need to understand that none of us are perfect and we will all make mistakes. This verse points out that EVERYONE, not just some, is given to things that are unholy and that we all deal falsely, lying, cheating, stealing etc...

Not a single one of us is excluded from this and whether we like it or not we are and always will be sinners, but if we truly repent, make a 180 degree turn and confess to the Lord our sin and choose to follow after Him, He will forgive us.
