BEING considered obedient today is not considered an especially positive description. Jeremiah spent 40 years warning the people of Judah to turn back to God, prophesying accurately their fate if they stubbornly refused to change. A lone voice, who was despised and rejected by his countrymen, Jeremiah was faithful to God. His obedience was not the spineless caricature so often envisioned today, but a courageous stand for truth against the entire flow of the culture that surrounded him. Study Jeremiah and see the clear parallels to our present situation.
