This message by Pastor Rod Harris was delivered at Trinity Baptist Church on Sunday evening, November 4, 2007, and was taken from Jeremiah 8:18-9:11
In this message Pastor Harris probes the difficulty of the task assigned to us as the people of God.
1. The passage from 8:18 through 9:1 reminds us that love for God’s people cause us to grieve over God’s righteous judgment upon them.
2. From 9:2 to 9:11 we see that a passion for God’s righteousness demands that we affirm the rightness of God’s judgment.
We must love one another enough to confront sin. We are called to live in that tension between love for God and his righteousness, and love for our brothers and sisters in Christ.
