Bible Lesson 28: Jeremiah Perseveres
Memory Verse: Jeremiah 29:11 For I know the plans I have for you – this is the LORD’s declaration – plans for your well-being, not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope.
- Jeremiah was the son of a priest. God is omniscient and He knew Jeremiah before Jeremiah was born.
- When God called Jeremiah to be His prophet, Jeremiah felt inadequate. Jeremiah needed to listen to God in order to know what God wanted him to say to the nation of Judah.
- God blessed Jeremiah and promised to strengthen him and deliver him from those who would seek to harm him because of the Lord’s message of judgment.
- Jeremiah proclaimed God’s warning of coming judgment on the people if they did not change their ways.
- In Jeremiah 29:11, God assured Judah and Jeremiah that His thoughts and plans toward them were to give them hope and a future.
- Psalm 139 reveals God’s omniscience, which means that He is all-knowing.
- When God calls people to do a special job, He faithfully prepares and empowers them.
- Reproof means criticism of a behavior or belief.
- In spite of suffering numerous forms of persecution and trials, Jeremiah remained faithful to God’s call.
- Jeremiah is known as the weeping prophet because he mourned over Israel’s sin and destruction.
- God faithfully accomplishes His plan, regardless of the circumstances.
- The Lord is faithful to believers and wants them to be faithful to Him.
- When the people refused to listen to God and Jeremiah, the prophecy of judgment against Judah was fulfilled.
- The Recabites faithfully obeyed their forefather’s instructions to never drink wine. This faithfulness pleased the Lord, and He promised that the family would always have a descendant who served Him.
- Jeremiah used the Recabites’ faithfulness to their earthly forefather as an example of how Judah should have been faithful to their heavenly Father.
- God used the analogy or example of how a potter molds clay to describe His relationship with His children. He shapes them into the image of Christ so they can fulfill His purpose.
- Although Adoniram Judson was raised in a faithful Christian family, his faith was challenged while in college, and he became an atheist for several. An atheist is someone who does not believe God exists.
- As a missionary, Judson suffered much persecution and endured many trials, but he never gave up. He led over 7,000 Burmese people to the Lord and translated the entire Bible into Burmese.
- Both Jeremiah and Adoniram Judson were called by God, heard god say go, were sent to people who worshipped idols, had opposition, persecution, and trials, and trusted God to deliver them.
