The Wicked

 

Jeremiah 13:10

Impenitence, Warnings Against Refusing To Hear

Hardness Of Heart

Bowing To False Gods

Fools, In Teaching Of Jesus Christ

Stubbornness, Consequences Of Futility

‘This wicked people, who refuse to listen to My words, who walk in the stubbornness of their hearts and have gone after other gods to serve them and to bow down to them, let them be just like this waistband which is totally worthless.

 

LESSON

 

The people of Judah, pure and untarnished at the time of their call, would be just as worthless as Jeremiah’s ruined waistband—because they had refused to listen to the Lord. They had been stubborn in their hearts, and had pursued idols by serving and worshiping them.

I heard the other day a Sunday school address which pleased me much. The teacher, speaking to the boys, said, “Boys, here is a watch; what is it for?” “To tell the time.” “Well,” said he, “suppose my watch does not tell the time, what is it good for? Good for nothing, sir.” Then he took out a pencil. “What is this pencil for?” “It is to write with, sir.” “Suppose this pencil won’t make a mark, what is it good for?” “Good for nothing, sir.” Then he took out a pocket knife. “Boys, what is this for?” They were American boys, so they shouted, “To whittle with,” — that is, to experiment on any substance that came in their way, by cutting a notch in it. “But,” said he, “suppose it will not cut, what is the knife good for?” “Good for nothing, sir.” Then the teacher said, “What is the chief end of man?” and they replied, “To glorify God.” “But suppose a man does not glorify God, what is he good for?” “Good for nothing, sir.”
( C. H. Spurgeon.)

What happens to your life when it is exposed to the atmosphere of a lost world?
