Message for this week.

 

As we gather for worship Sunday the readings reflect on the hardships that may well enter our lives because we are the Lord’s. The prophet Jeremiah writes of the insults and reproach which came his way when he spoke the word of the Lord. Jesus warns that those who follow Him will certainly not receive any better treatment than He. Yet the world’s answer: “Then don’t follow Christ, don’t speak His word,” is not at all what our lessons suggest. Indeed, both Jeremiah and Jesus encourage us not to give in to the pressures and hatred of the world with the assurance that God is always watching over His own and will protect and preserve us in every situation. Thus Jeremiah’s conclusion: “Sing to the Lord; praise to the Lord! For he has delivered the life of the needy from the hand of evildoers” (Jeremiah 20:13).
