Today's Reading: Jeremiah 2

Please read Jeremiah 1 and listen to what the Lord Jesus Christ would like to tell you before reading my Spiritual Journal below. If you would like to learn a simple and good way of Daily Devotion method please read my “Count Down 5” from this blog. You may click this link directly for the method: Subject Shifting Devotion.pdf.

Please click the links below to Jeremiah 2:

"My people have committed two sins:
They have forsaken me,
the spring of living water,
and have dug their own cisterns
broken cisterns that cannot hold water."

Jeremiah 2:13

Bible Study

God through Jeremiah told the Israelites that the relationship between God and his people was so intimate that the Lord was considered the nation's "husband". But now the entire nation of Israel had abandoned their faith in God and pursued security and satisfaction from false gods (vv. 4-5, 25).

They lost their relationship with God mainly because of two sins:
1. They neglected and rejected God, the only One who could give them a truly fulfilling and purpose-filled life.
2. They tried to find purpose and pleasure in things other than God just like digging cisterns but those were broken cisterns that cannot hold water.

Those are the problems of the Israelites. Do you know your problem?

My Spiritual Journal

What I receive from Jesus is: Do you know your problem?

Today Jesus challenges us if we have stepped into that two main sins that the Israelites did.
1. Walk away from God and walk into all those things that we think can give us satisfaction and and quench our thirsty.
2. What we have are just broken cisterns: all we have been trying out best to earn for a living and to establish our esteem and everything might be just broken cisterns because they can't hold anything. Sooner or later it will dry up and we are thirsty again, not satisfied and try to dig another cistern but later we'll find out that's also a broken one.

Do you know you problem?

Dear Lord Jesus,
Help us to know our real problem and that we won't walk away from you anymore. In Jesus Name we pray. Amen.
