Today's Reading: Jeremiah 7

Please read Jeremiah 7 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. (You may begin with a song to praise the Lord and complete you devotion by singing another praise song.)

Please click the links below to Jeremiah 7:

"But I gave them this command;
Obey me, and I will be your God and you will be my people.
Walk in all the ways I command you,
that it may go well with you.
But they did not listen or pay attention;
instead, they followed the stubborn inclinations of their evil hearts.
They went backward and not forward.

Jeremiah 7: 21-22

Bible Study

This chapter describes how God gives his people an opportunity to turn from their evil ways and return to God's path of life -
Reform your ways and your actions! Jeremiah 7:3

But, the Israelites believed they were all right because they had the temple and followed its rituals, they saw no need to repent.

In fact their ways and actions were to steal and murder(vv. 9-11), worshiping the 'queen of heaven" which was the Babylonian fertility goddess. Jeremiah says the following of other gods is "to your own harm". (v. 6) He gives an example of how God destroyed Shiloh in the time of the judges as Shiloh was the center of worship at that time with the presence of the tabernacle.

Are you one of those who thinks everything is OK because you have a church to go to, nothing needs to change?

My Spiritual Journal

What I receive from Jesus is: Forward and not backward please!

Jesus reminds me today that there are quite a number of Christians I know who do not think there is anything to change. The strange thing is that most of them have one same thought: I am quite good now, I have a church to go, I am doing Christian things, I do not have anything to change!

If that is you then you need to read carefully what this chapter tells you. To reform our ways and actions is a daily process that we will be changed into a lifestyle of Christlikeness so that we can be fruitful!

Jesus give you a warning today: Forward and not backward please!

Dear Lord Jesus,
Help us to reform our ways and actions by our willingness to change each day to be more like you. In Jesus Name we pray. Amen.
