Jeremiah 31:27-32:44;  1 Timothy 3:1-16;  Psalm 88:1-18;  Proverbs 25:20-22

“Then the word of the Lord came to Jeremiah:  I am the Lord, the God of all mankind.  Is anything too hard for me?

You are saying about this city, ‘By the sword, famine and plague it will be handed over to the king of Babylon’: but this is what the Lord, the God of Israel says:  I will surely gather them from all the lands where I banish them in my furious anger and great wrath;  I will bring them back to this place and let them live in safety.  They will be my people, and I will be their God.  I will give them singleness of heart and action, so that they will always fear me for their own good and the good of their children after them.  I will make an everlasting covenant with them:  I will never stop doing good to them, and I will inspire them to fear me, so that they will never turn away from me.  I will rejoice in doing them good and will assuredly plant them in this land with all my heart and soul.”

Jeremiah 32:36-41

Amazing love,

He has planted in our

hearts

and nurtures us with all

his heart and soul.

He rejoices

in doing good for us.

He promises to make us

stand firm in our faith.

Thank you for this

indescribable gift

which we have in

Christ Jesus

our Lord!

Amen.
