This message by Pastor Rod Harris was delivered at Trinity Baptist Church on Sunday evening, January 27, 2008, and was taken from Jeremiah 11:18-12:6.
In the passage before us we find four principles for living a godly life in an ungodly world. If you live godly, it will leave you vulnerable, and therefore:
- Godly living demands that you count the cost.
- Godly living demands submission to God’s will and places confidence in his righteous judgment.
- Our peace and security rests in the certainty that God will bring all of his enemies to justice.
- When our sinful hearts dare to question God’s goodness or question his timing, his loving heart brings us back in line.
