Jeremiah 37:2 But neither he, nor his servants, nor the people of the land, did hearken unto the words of the LORD, which he spake by the prophet Jeremiah.
God sent His word. They had a prophet, a man of God, to speak to them for God. That didn’t matter to them. They ignored the man of God. They ignored God.
Isn’t that much of our story? Would you be honest about your own church attendance and worship services? Do you attend and listen but not hear? Do you hear the Bible preached, fill your mind with new truth, but do little with the truth you hear?
It is time to listen to God. It is time to take it to heart. It is time that we treated the word of God like it really is, the word of God to us.
