My heart is crushed, Jeremiah 8.21

“My heart is crushed because my dear people are being crushed. I go about crying and grieving. I am overwhelmed with dismay.”

Jeremiah 8.21

The weeping prophet felt the weight of Israel’s sin. The Lord had told him to tell the people the consequences that will follow. There is a solution, v. 22, but they have refused it.

Jesus wept over Jerusalem’s rejection. Do I feel the burden of people’s sin to the point of offering them the solution of God’s salvation?
