WHY SIN IS STILL SIN! (Jeremiah 6:10-16)

Mark Bernthal, August 27, 2017
Part of the Post-Pentecost series, preached at a Sunday Morning service

Sermon Text: Jeremiah 6:10-16
This morning we are beginning a four week journey through the book of the prophet Jeremiah. He prophesied under the last six kings of Judah (626-586 B.C.) During the 40 years of his work, Jeremiah faced a people who were moving away from the Lord and toward judgment. The kings and priests of Judah had led the people into idolatry, immorality, violence, and injustice. As a result of their sinfulness, the people’s hearts hardened to Jeremiah’s call to repentance. Jeremiah prophesied that their unwillingness to listen to God’s Word would lead to their doom. Soon the Babylonians would take them captive and place them in exile.

Jeremiah 6:10-16

10 To whom shall I speak and give warning,
that they may hear?
Behold, their ears are uncircumcised,
they cannot listen;
behold, the word of the Lord is to them an object of scorn;
they take no pleasure in it.
11 Therefore I am full of the wrath of the Lord;
I am weary of holding it in.
“Pour it out upon the children in the street,
and upon the gatherings of young men, also;
both husband and wife shall be taken,
the elderly and the very aged.
12 Their houses shall be turned over to others,
their fields and wives together,
for I will stretch out my hand
against the inhabitants of the land,”
declares the Lord.
13 “For from the least to the greatest of them,
everyone is greedy for unjust gain;
and from prophet to priest,
everyone deals falsely.
14 They have healed the wound of my people lightly,
saying, ‘Peace, peace,’
when there is no peace.
15 Were they ashamed when they committed abomination?
No, they were not at all ashamed;
they did not know how to blush.
Therefore they shall fall among those who fall;
at the time that I punish them, they shall be overthrown,”
says the Lord.

16 Thus says the Lord:
“Stand by the roads, and look,
and ask for the ancient paths,
where the good way is; and walk in it,
and find rest for your souls.
But they said, ‘We will not walk in it.’ (ESV)
