Two are better than one, because they have a good return for their labor

Ecclesiastes 4:9 (NIV)

Now is not the time to quit.

We are just getting started on the Jeremiah Journey and we have an entire year ahead of us.

We can find ourselves stuck when we do not have the necessary support to go the distance. We get weary and leary and we want to quit. We are ready surrender under the weight of the responsibility of carrying on and going any further. But as Norman Vincent Peale said: “It is always to early to quit.”

Accept this as our connecting and collaborating on the Jeremiah Journey together. As I have openly and honestly shared in the past posts, I have come this way before. I have been on this journey in my past, and I lost my way and caved in to the urge to surrender.

Not this time.

We are on this journey together. Whether you want to learn more about one of the major prophets or you simply seek an extensive study that covers the entire year, the Jeremiah Journey fits the bill. It covers the entire year. It covers a major prophet in Jeremiah. However, life will still happen. Illness will still attack your body. Stress will remain a factor. Tests and trials will still pop up throughout our days. I offer you support to help you go and grow.

Join us for our Bible discussion on Jeremiah Chapter 1 via YouTube today at 9:30 AM PST

Dive Deep into the Text via Discussion

Our Live @ Lunch Bible Study is a weekly livestream that incorporates a discussion on the biblical text and a relevant topic to today’s Christian. This is not designed for theology majors and seminary students. This is for the everyday Christian believer and those who are interested in learning more about the Christian faith. Let this discussion help you gain more perspective on the Bible and its contents. Use the chat and comments on YouTube or Twitch to pose questions and your own ideas to help you along the Jeremiah Journey.

Dig Deeper into the Text with Bible Study Resources

We developed the Bible Study Resource List to serve as a help to those who might get stuck and feel like they need to stop. Tap into the resource list and its contents to push you to dig into the text at a deeper level. Use this resource list to expand and enhance your study of the Bible as you continue on the Jeremiah Journey.

Additional support can be found via other blogs such as The Simple Preacher and the Devotional Guy. They offer straightforward reflections on the Word of God that you might find of interest. Also, other blogs offer insights into the Book of Jeremiah, too. You find out what the Book of Jeremiah teaches us or gain a political perspective on the Book of Jeremiah with the Christian Mind.

Whatever you do, don’t quit. We’re just getting started. And we’re on this journey together.

“Jesus asks for everything.” – Francis Chan, Crazy Love

How absurd does it sound to give up everything and give it over to Jesus?

Let me rephrase that.

How absurd does it sound to an atheist to give up everything and give it over to Jesus?

How absurd does it sound to someone who does not even know Jesus to give up everything and give it over to Jesus?

Should that also apply to Christians, though?

David did not think so.  In preparation for the building of the temple, David oversaw the collection of an abundance of resources.  In response, David acknowledged that all of it already belonged to God.

LORD our God, all this abundance that we have provided for building you a temple for your Holy Name comes from your hand, and all of it belongs to you. – 1 Chronicles 29:16 (NIV)

Jesus simply answered the question with simplicity.  One of His responses is captured in the Gospel of Matthew.  Look at His words, then look at how you handle the Lord’s resources.

19“Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moths and vermin destroy, and where thieves break in and steal. 20But store up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where moths and vermin do not destroy, and where thieves do not break in and steal. 21For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also. – Matthew 6:19-21 (NIV)
