Richer Blessings
Jeremiah 23:3-4
hr1

Jeremiah 23:3-4 says, "But I will gather the remnant of My flock out of all countries where I have driven them, and bring them back to their folds; and they shall be fruitful and increase. I will set up shepherds over them who will feed them; and they shall fear no more, nor be dismayed, nor shall they be lacking," says the LORD.

As we discovered in one of our earlier devotionals, God gives richer blessings to these who remain faithful (the remnant). A good question to ask is, "What are the blessings for those who remain faithful?"

Jeremiah gives us a good clue,

  • They will have no fear.
  • They will lack for nothing
  • The will be frutiful.
  • They will increase.

Are you interested in increasing? In fruitfulness? In not being afraid? God says those are things that happen to the remnant. These are the rich blessings you will receive if you stay faithful, committed, and obedient.

I once read a story about an old member of the Brooklyn Dodgers, a pitcher named Harry Hartman. In 1918, he was called up from the minors to pitch against the Pittsburgh Pirates. It was his dream come true! On his first pitch, the batter hit a single. No big deal. The next batter hit a triple. Harry walked the next guy on four consecutive pitches. The next batter hit a single. Harry Hartman walked off the mound, went into the locker room, showered, put on his street clothes, went to a local naval recruiting office, and enlisted. The next day he was in uniform and was never seen again in professional baseball. He got discouraged and quit.

No matter what, do not give up! Remain faithful, because God promises great blessings to those who stay the course.

LAST SUNDAY
     Yesterday we finished our series called Kaleo which is a Greek word that means called. Yesterday we saw how God has called us to Make Disciples. We saw that this is one of the most important life assignments from God. This message is on the website, under Info Center in the Sermon Archive. Next week, we will begin a new series called Red Letter Days, where we will look at the sayings of Christ from when He was on the Cross.
