Anglican Devotional 1 April 2022 – Sustaining Divine Covenant

The Daily Fountain Devotional of the Church Of Nigeria (Anglican Communion) 1 April 2022 – Sustaining Divine Covenant

TOPIC: Sustaining Divine Covenant

READ: Jeremiah 11:1-17 (NKJV)

  1. The word that came to Jeremiah from the LORD, saying,
  2. “Hear the words of this covenant, and speak to the men of Judah and to the inhabitants of Jerusalem;
  3. “and say to them, ‘Thus says the LORD God of Israel: “Cursed [is] the man who does not obey the words of this covenant
  4. “which I commanded your fathers in the day I brought them out of the land of Egypt, from the iron furnace, saying, ‘Obey My voice, and do according to all that I command you; so shall you be My people, and I will be your God,’
  5. “that I may establish the oath which I have sworn to your fathers, to give them ‘a land flowing with milk and honey,’ as [it is] this day.” ‘ ” And I answered and said, “So be it, LORD.”
  6. Then the LORD said to me, “Proclaim all these words in the cities of Judah and in the streets of Jerusalem, saying: ‘Hear the words of this covenant and do them.
  7. ‘For I earnestly exhorted your fathers in the day I brought them up out of the land of Egypt, until this day, rising early and exhorting, saying, “Obey My voice.”
  8. ‘Yet they did not obey or incline their ear, but everyone followed the dictates of his evil heart; therefore I will bring upon them all the words of this covenant, which I commanded [them] to do, but [which] they have not done.’ “
  9. And the LORD said to me, “A conspiracy has been found among the men of Judah and among the inhabitants of Jerusalem.
  10. “They have turned back to the iniquities of their forefathers who refused to hear My words, and they have gone after other gods to serve them; the house of Israel and the house of Judah have broken My covenant which I made with their fathers.”
  11. Therefore thus says the LORD: “Behold, I will surely bring calamity on them which they will not be able to escape; and though they cry out to Me, I will not listen to them.
  12. “Then the cities of Judah and the inhabitants of Jerusalem will go and cry out to the gods to whom they offer incense, but they will not save them at all in the time of their trouble.
  13. “For [according to] the number of your cities were your gods, O Judah; and [according to] the number of the streets of Jerusalem you have set up altars to [that] shameful thing, altars to burn incense to Baal.
  14. ” So do not pray for this people, or lift up a cry or prayer for them; for I will not hear [them] in the time that they cry out to Me because of their trouble.
  15. “What has My beloved to do in My house, Having done lewd deeds with many? And the holy flesh has passed from you. When you do evil, then you rejoice.
  16. The LORD called your name, Green Olive Tree, Lovely [and] of Good Fruit. With the noise of a great tumult He has kindled fire on it, And its branches are broken.
  17. “For the LORD of hosts, who planted you, has pronounced doom against you for the evil of the house of Israel and of the house of Judah, which they have done against themselves to provoke Me to anger in offering incense to Baal.”

THE MESSAGE:

In our text today, we see that Judah had gone back into the idolatry she was saved from; the people had gone back to the sin of their forefathers (verses 9,10).

This was an unfortunate departure from the divine plan of making Judah God’s People and of God being their God through all generations. From the scriptures, we realise that God enjoys seeing His covenant cycled from generation to generation. He loves it when His covenant with a people sustains a divine move, from one era to another.

So, as believers, it is our responsibility to obey God as well ensure that our divine covenant with Him is passed from one generation to another. How do we do this? Through consistent obedience to God’s word and a sequential teaching of His word.

By so doing, we will overcome the error of Judah, that is, departing from divine covenant. As you face the day, may you receive the grace to preserve and transfer God’s divine covenant with you to another life!
