Jeremiah 4:3 (KJV)
For thus saith the LORD to the men of Judah and Jerusalem, Break up your fallow ground, and sow not among thorns.
There is, in this chapter, a little element of hope:
- for Gentiles,
- for Israel and
- for Judah
Truth is there is hope in the Bible for everyone who will heed it.
- There is hope for those who repent
- There is hope for those who return
- There is hope for those who remain
God gave a message to Judah and Jerusalem, but the message makes sense for us all. Before we plant, we need to prepare. Just as seed placed on:
- fallow and
ground can hope to produce little, so it is true in the realm of the spiritual.
The best fruit will yield through preparation.
- A tender repentant heart will hear best the Bible message
- A soft and surrendered life will best walk after the Spirit
- A prayed up and holy mind will best profit from study
What a blessing it is to see people trust the Lord as Saviour and begin to attend church! We must preach to them, however, that Christian growth requires more than attendance.
Christians must prepare so that they may produce spiritual benefits.
