Jeremiah 19:1

This is what the LORD said to me: "Go and buy a clay jar."….As these men watch you, Jeremiah, smash the jar you brought. Then say to them, "This is what the LORD of Heaven's Armies says: As this jar lies shattered, so I will shatter the people of Judah and Jerusalem beyond all hope of repair."

Wow, ruin. Utter ruin! Why? Because the people were not obedient to God's Word.

Without Jesus this would be our fate.

Imagine, God so angry that He was going to destroy all. His exact words were I will shatter the people…They will bury their bodies here in Topheth, the garbage dump, until there is no more room for them. Disaster.

God loved these people and yet He was so angry with them for disobedience.

Ponder the fact that Jesus took the cup for each of us. He took God's anger upon himself on that cross, so that each of us could be spared.


Ponder today the grace offered for us. We don't deserve it; we deserve the exact fate of these people. We are saved because of the cross. The cross that Jesus suffered and died on for you and for me to have eternal life; picture it!

When you see clay jar remember without Jesus we would lay shattered…

Instead, we have eternal life!

Sweet blessings,
