The Problem with the People of God


Our Pastor, Administrative Assistant Marvin Sanders, speaking on Jeremiah 18:1-6….

“In this particular scripture, Jeremiah has spent quite a bit of time anguishing, in anxiety, and he was perplexed about how the church was responding to God. The people were not properly responding to God and to His will. They would put aside doing the will of God and they would go their own way. They would do their own thing. They would not seek God. They would not respect God. They would not reverence God. But yet, they wanted to be blessed by God…

“Everybody wants to be pleasing in the sight of God – whether they are living for him or not… But sometimes, the things of this world will lay hold upon our minds and our thinking and it will drive us and cause to wonder in directions that are foreign to the will of God. But it’s up to us to maintain a certain level of focus that will not allow us to stray away from God’s will.

“This is what was going on in the church of Israel. They were doing some of everything. They were worshipping idol gods. They were not respecting or reverencing the Lord’s house. They were not coming to service and serving the Lord with their whole heart. They were not sacrificing unto God. They were not respecting God as their God. But they yet want to walk in the name of God. And some of the things that I am describing now are similar things that are happening in this present day and time.”
