Jeremiah: Shattered Story

June 25, 2017

 

THE SERMON

This summer, we are studying the story of Jeremiah, otherwise known as “the weeping prophet.” Jeremiah’s story is a tragic one, yet it reveals to us the things that break God’s heart. As we study the life of Jeremiah in a season where the heart of God and the words of his prophet and the nation of his people are shattered, our prayer is that our hearts break for the things that break God’s heart.

You can watch past sermons here.

 

Continuing our series in Jeremiah, Lead Minister, Sy Huffer, expresses the importance of sowing a heart to reap a story.

 

THE QUESTIONS

Use these questions to further explore the topic of the sermon:

Pray: How is God calling you to sow a heart and reap a story? What area of your heart needs to be dug into? Pray the prayer that David prayed in Psalm 51:10, “Create in me a clean heart, O God.”

Speak: Who do you know that is asking the question, “How did I end up here?” Who do you know that is reaping a story and doesn’t see the connection between their story and their heart? What does it look like for you to share with them the good news that Jesus offers for their heart and their story?

Grow: Do you resonate with that TV show, Lemony Snicket’s Series of Unfortunate Events? Do you constantly feel like your life is “shattered”? How is God calling you to sow your heart during this season? How is God calling you to become more like him, even when you don’t feel his presence?

Love: Who do you know that needs to be loved in the midst of their “How did I end up here” season?
