For my people have committed two evils: they have forsaken me, the fountain of living waters, and hewed out cisterns for themselves, broken cisterns that can hold no water. ~ Jeremiah 2:13
In Jeremiah Chapter 2, the LORD sends Jeremiah out to HIS children to admonish them for straying from HIM and to beg for them to return to HIM and his perfect LOVE.
He warns of the consequences of their sins, forsaking HIM and worshiping other man-made Gods.
Relevance In MY Life
There was a time in my life when I would argue with anyone that said that HE was the one true god. I believed that there was a greater being or purpose but did not so much believe in HIM. I forsake the LORD and refused to believe in HIS word.
LORD, I have asked for forgiveness for forsaking you and thank you that you provided that forgiveness through your son, Jesus Christ.
Relevance In Today’s World
In current times, the most worshiped item is money. I would say that is followed closely by technology. Many have turned from worshiping our LORD for these and other idols.
This passage is true for us today even though we are living centuries from when GOD first spoke the words to Jeremiah.
LORD, I have been guilty of worshiping other god’s before. Please forgive this in your child. Also, help our world to remember who the one true GOD is. Let us go back to using money and technology as tools in your service rather than as our gods.
