Jeremiah 7:1 This is the word that came to Jeremiah from the Lord: 2 “Stand at the gate of the Lord’s house and there proclaim this message: “‘Hear the word of the Lord, all you people of Judah who come through these gates to worship the Lord. 3 This is what the Lord Almighty, the God of Israel, says: Reform your ways and your actions, and I will let you live in this place.
What do we do when there is moral decay? What do we do when sin is all around us? We should preach! Preach God’s ways, preach God’s word, preach the way of the Lord. Jeremiah did that. It could take us a long time to study all the things that Jeremiah suffered because of his message. What he suffered was nothing compared to the suffering that the people had suffered, because they did not hear and obey the message preached by Jeremiah. If we want to change the world we live in, we must preach. It doesn’t matter if people make fun of us nor if people think we’re crazy or ignorant. It doesn’t matter at all what people think. What matters is that God has a message of salvation for the people and they need to hear it. Preach God’s word!
