Day 090: Journey Through the Bible in a Year
Focus Verses for Today: Jeremiah 5:26-28
Take a few moments to ask God to share His true meaning of today’s journey through Jeremiah 1-6 with you. Now read Jeremiah 1-6. Let’s journey!
Commentary: Jeremiah was likely around the age of 20 when he was called by the Lord. Like many, Jeremiah is resistant to the call, believing himself incapable. God told Jeremiah that some would seek to harm him, but not to waiver because God was protecting him. Today’s reading covers approximately the first five years of Jeremiah’s ministry. The past is often used to remind individuals to trust and rely upon the Lord.
Jeremiah rebukes Judah for having embraced idolatry, worshipping gods made of wood and stone, thereby rejecting the Lord, the true God. King Josiah was a good king, earnestly seeking the way of the Lord and attempting to leads his people back to the way of the Lord. Unfortunately, the majority of individuals were not like Josiah. They did not embrace the Lord in their hearts and repent. Instead, they found more pleasure in sin than in serving God the Creator.
