Reluctant Messenger

God still sends His followers to announce the good news of Jesus to hurting and broken people. Most of God’s messengers throughout the Bible were unsure of themselves, overwhelmed at the idea of speaking on God’s behalf to their generation. In spite of their weaknesses, fears, sins, and insecurities, God asked them to speak on His behalf to a world in need. One of the most reluctant messengers was a prophet named Jeremiah. Like Moses before him, he gave the Lord a list of excuses as to why He had called the wrong man. But the Lord knew what He was doing, and He challenged Jeremiah’s assumptions, comforted his fears, and renewed his spirit. Little did Jeremiah know how much he would need the Lord’s help in the face of the coming opposition. In October and November at Cityview, we will learn many truths from the life and ministry of Jeremiah. Join us for this fascinating study, as we grow toward becoming humble and confident messengers to a generation that finds it hard to hear the best news the world has ever known.
