Jeremiah lived about 600 years before the birth of Jesus. HE lived at a time when God was punishing the Jewish nation and allowing them to be conquered by foreign armies. God inspired the prophet Jeremiah and gave him words to speak to the Jewish leaders.
Jeremiah knew that the message he had to give would be unpopular. HE could face punishment and even death if he dared to speak it. Reading this story can encourage us to follow in the footsteps of Jeremiah the prophet, who had the courage and conviction to speak out against the evils of his day and to tell the truth about God’s plan for his people.
