Session 5.05 for February 3, 2013
For the third week in a row in our FaithElement sessions, we hear a word from an Old Testament prophet. These prophets challenge our comforts and call us to live a life that is oriented towards God. In today’s passage, God calls Jeremiah to be a “prophet to the nations.” It may sound glamorous to us, but in reality, Jeremiah was anointed with divine words that were difficult for people to hear. Jeremiah was outcast for speaking the truth. We, too, are called, as Jeremiah was called to speak truth and let God’s words flow from our lips. Yet, too often, we ignore the call in favor of the comfortable road.
