Unbroken Fellowship

Today’s Scripture: Jeremiah 50-52

Read it online:  NIV  ESV  KJV  The Message

We must pay more careful attention, therefore, to what we have heard, so that we do not drift away. – Hebrews 2:1

In the last chapters of Jeremiah, God is trying to get the attention of Babylon and warn the people that if they continue to follow their current lifestyle, the curtain will fall and the show will be over.

In Jeremiah 51:33, we find an example of God’s warning: “This is what the Lord Almighty, the God of Israel, says: ‘The daughter of Babylon is like a threshing floor at the time it is trampled; the time to harvest her will soon come.'” The Babylonians did not heed the warning, and in the years to come, the prophecies of Babylon’s shocking destruction were all fulfilled.

What are the warnings you and I must not ignore in our walk of daily discipleship? What are the signs that we may be getting sidetracked from the Lord’s plan for our lives? Is it getting easier to skip a daily quiet time of prayer and Bible reading? Are we passing up opportunities to share our faith with others? What about our prayer life and our thoughts?

I know a husband and wife who were growing spiritually and were very active in their church. But when the man was promoted at work, they moved into a higher financial bracket, found a new set of friends, and became more sophisticated in their attitude toward the things of God. Soon, golf and tennis took the place of Sunday morning worship. The Bible study group they attended went by the wayside. When their pastor visited them and urged them to return to the Lord, they let him know his warnings were not welcome.

In our Christian faith, the bottom line is not a list of things to do, but a person to love.

Prayer

Lord, You are the strength of my life. May I not be tempted to put other things ahead of fellowship with You. Amen.

To Ponder

God’s warning signs are designed to point us toward the person of Jesus Christ and our fellowship with Him.
