Jeremiah is a hard book to read because even though God took them by the hand and led them out of bondage in Egypt, the Isrealites still strayed by breaking the Law, even worshiping idols. Jeremiah is known as the weeping prophet, not bec.ause he wept for himself (even though his own people persecuted him), but because ~ he wept for his people when they turned their backs on God. Jeremiah told of the coming fulfillment of the Law, which we now know to be Jesus. The grace that we receive through Christ is transfbrmative. It changes our entire lives, both public and private. Many people feel that the Old Tes- tament is all about God's judgement and punishment, but "mercy" is actu- ally one of the most repeated words. God gives us the truth. We may not like it, and we may not want to listen to it, but He will keep giving it to us. Even when we give up on ourselves, God never;gives up on us. He is reaching out tq'us. We just need to accept Him. Doing so will not only change our lives,but it"will change the world when we live the lives that Jesus intends. He inquired ofan old man whether it were sinful to write for morley. And the old man answered, "There be two kinds of writers, my son: to wit, those who write for money and get it, and those who write for money and don't get it."
