Jeremiah 1-2, Romans 15:1-13
9“Therefore I still contend with you,
declares the Lord,
and with your children’s children I will contend.
13for 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.
21Yet I planted you a choice vine,
wholly of pure seed.
How then have you turned degenerate
and become a wild vine?
19Your evil will chastise you,
and your apostasy will reprove you.
Know and see that it is evil and bitter
for you to forsake the Lord your God;
the fear of me is not in you,
declares the Lord God of hosts.
13May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, so that by the power of the Holy Spirit you may abound in hope.
The God of endurance, encouragement, and hope is the same God of Jeremiah. Praise Him for His infinite wisdom and holy justice.
19They will fight against you, but they shall not prevail against you, for I am with you, declares the Lord, to deliver you.”
