Sermon, Sunday October 23, 2016

15″Lord, you understand;
    remember me and care for me.
    Avenge me on my persecutors.
You are long-suffering—do not take me away;
    think of how I suffer reproach for your sake.”

Jeremiah 15:15

Sermon Study Questions: Jeremiah 15:15-21

  1. How do you pray to God? (Do you treat God like a genie, Santa Clause, a friend, a lover, the cause of all of your problems, etc?)
  2.  Jeremiah has an intimate prayer life with God, but he too, struggles with human inclinations (like self-pity). Think of a time when you went from grief/pain into self-pity. How did that make you feel?
  3.  God calls Jeremiah to repentance in his state of self-pity. What is one thing God is calling you to repent of that might be preventing you from having a deeper, more intimate relationship with God?
  4.  God restores Jeremiah, and promises to be with him, to save him and deliver him. What does it mean to be saved or delivered by God?
  5. How well do you trust that God will save and deliver you?
