You are listening to "Israel, Clay In The Potter’s Hand" sermon 4 of the series, “The Church in Babylon”
Jeremiah was sent on a field trip to watch a potter working with his wheel and clay. This analogy illustrates how God shapes the lives of nations and individuals. He patiently uses circumstances and people to turn us into what He desires.
When we face difficulties, often we ask, “God, why is this happening?” But we must remember to trust the hands of the Potter. His way is best, even when we can’t understand it.
What comes to mind when you hear the name Babylon? Babylon is often used as a symbol of man’s rebellion against God. Thanks to their rebellion, the Jews were eventually carried off into Babylon, where they tried to maintain their faith in the midst of a pagan culture. These messages from the book of Jeremiah walk through what happened before the coming of the Babylonians and the destruction of Jerusalem. We will see parallels to our own nation; more importantly, we will look into our own hearts and see that we, like generations before us, must prepare for dark and difficult days. These messages are intended to motivate us to be faithful in a pagan culture that is under the judgment of God.
