Jeremiah 50:6 My people hath been lost sheep: Their shepherds have caused them to go astray, they have turned them away on the mountains: They have gone from mountain to hill, They have forgotten their resting place.
Jeremiah often talks about the shepherds, pastors, of God’s people. Much of the blame for what is happening can be laid on the pastors. They caused God’s people to go astray. They didn’t preach what God said. They said what the people wanted to hear. The people began to think that there was rest outside of God and His will.
God help us to be and have pastors that will just preach your word. Too much opinion and self help is being preached today. Bring us back to your word.
