How Did Jeremiah Become Jeremiah?
The Big Idea: God calls us to be faithful, not to produce a particular outcome.
He was reluctant to serve God, afraid of what might happen, and wept when it did. He was angered by his mistreatment, yet never wavered on the truth, and boiled with passion for his work. God never allowed him to experience the love of and for a wife and children. He failed miserably in his mission and watched in horror as his country collapsed in defeat. Yet he still found it in himself to speak hopeful words of encouragement to the same people who ignored his message.
Jeremiah became himself by taking a wild emotional roller coaster ride. But it would be a mistake to think you and I won't have just as many ups and downs. So join us as we explore the obstacles Jeremiah faced and how he overcame them. What did Jeremiah face that you will face? What central idea kept him focused? It's the same idea that can keep each of us focused through all our ups and downs.
