It is because you made offerings and because you sinned against the Lord and did not obey the voice of the Lord or walk in his law and in his statutes and in his testimonies that this disaster has happened to you, as at this day.” (Jeremiah 44:23 ESV)
За те, що кадили ви, і що грішили Господеві, і не слухалися Господнього голосу, і не ходили Законом Його й Його правом та свідоцтвами Його, тому спіткало вас оце зло, як бачите цього дня. (Єремія 44:23 Ukrainian)
O LORD God, my dear heavenly Father ~ your name is highly exalted above anything that is named in all the universe! Thank you for the gift of your beloved Son. He came and lived among us for a few short decades. Then he surrendered to earthly authorities and allowed himself to become a sacrifice for the sins of all people willing to trust and obey Christ as Lord. How great is your love! Help us to love Jesus Christ with enough intensity that we are willing to live in obedience to his perfect commands. Fill our hearts with the knowledge of your good and perfect plan as we study your Spirit inspired Scriptures. In the precious name of Jesus, Amen.
David Binkley, Sr. Gospel Minister
