Please read Jeremiah 2:1-8
Yesterday we covered the importance of INIQUITY and IDOLITRY and today:
I. THE QUESTION OF INSINCERITY VERSES 21-23.
A. Their hypocrisy was evident: Israel says, “I have not sinned.” They have a false sense of self-confidence verses 35-37.
B. Hiding is impossible for them Matthew 7:21-23.
II. THE QUESTION OF INCOMPETENCE VERSES 28-29, 32.
A. Their gods cannot help them.
B. Their appeals cannot be regarded.
C. The remembrance has left out the true and living God.
III. THE QUESTION OF INCONSISTENCY VERSES 33-36.
A. They compromised their position verse 33.
B. They catered to their enemies for pleasure verses 34-36.
C. They changed their ways for power verse 36.
How do you and I measure along side these great questions this morning? We ought to add one more question from the New Testament, Hebrews 2:3, “How shall we escape, if we neglect so great salvation?”
