Patience

Thoughts by Pastor Brad...

Jeremiah 36:27-28 says; After the king had burned the scroll on which Baruch had written Jeremiah’s words, the Lord gave Jeremiah another message. He said, “Get another scroll, and write everything again just as you did on the scroll King Jehoiakim burned.”  Jeremiah painstakingly dictated God’s words to his scribe Baruch who read them to the people in Jerusalem.  The scroll eventually got to King Jehoiachim who systematically cut and burned the entire scroll in the fire as it was read.  God’s response was for Jeremiah to do it all over again with even more details of the impending judgment against Judah and the call for them to repent of their sins.  Are you frustrated today?  Do you wonder why God has you doing things over and over in your life?  Do family members or friends frustrate you when they reject the light of Christ in their lives?  Don’t give up!  Continue to pray for them and for yourself to have the patience to work with them to the very end.  God does not give up people and neither should we today.
