Who rules your heart? Who reigns over your strength, mind, and soul? Where do you look for deliverance and freedom? In Jeremiah 21-23, the enemy is at the gates. God’s judgment is at hand. After forty years of resisting God’s call to repent, Judah’s king finally seeks an audience with the prophet. Zedekiah vainly hopes for a miraculous deliverance as in the days of Hezekiah. But Jeremiah offers only the gospel. He calls out the sins of Judah’s kings, calls the people to repent, and points them to a new king – a king of righteousness, justice and peace, King Jesus.
We too are facing God’s judgement. We cry out for some miraculous deliverance and God offers the gospel. Repent, trust in His grace, and serve a new King. It’s time for a change. It’s time for new leadership. It’s time for a new King – King Jesus. Listen as we examine Jeremiah 21-23 and consider what king we serve.
