Jesus Christ: the Judge and Savior of All Nations
Today’s reading: Jeremiah 49:1-39
My selection: Jeremiah 49:2
2 Therefore, behold, the days are coming,
declares the Lord,
when I will cause the battle cry to be heard
against Rabbah of the Ammonites;
it shall become a desolate mound,
and its villages shall be burned with fire;
then Israel shall dispossess those who dispossessed him,
says the Lord.
My reflections: God’s rule is not limited to Israel and Judah. Here Jeremiah proclaims God’s judgment against the neighboring nations of Judah. No one escapes. At the same time, the Lord Jesus Christ, who will judge the world (John 4:19-29), called his people to make disciples of all nations (Matthew 28:19-20).
My challenge: Are you conscious of God’s purpose in all the world? Make world missions a priority in your prayer, giving, sending, and even going, if God wills, that all the world may hear that Christ is Lord and Savior of all who believe in Him.
Tomorrow’s reading: Jeremiah 50:1-51:64
