Over 2,500 years ago, God’s people were uprooted and sent into exile, to live among a hostile pagan culture. God did not leave them without instruction, however, sending word through the prophet Jeremiah on how they were to live as his people in exile. Today, every assembly of believers is an outpost embedded in a pagan culture, and so Jeremiah’s message stands to guide us in how to live during the years of our sojourning.
As we peer into the life and times of Jeremiah, we discover that Judah’s struggles with sin are not far off from our own today in the church. It is crucially important for us as Christians to discern our hearts to know what lures us to forsake God, the fountain of living waters, and to dig out cisterns for ourselves, broken cisterns that can hold no water.
