Jeremiah 23:28-29 – Let the prophet who has a dream tell the dream, but let the one who has my word speak my word faithfully. What has straw in common with wheat? says the LORD. Is not my word like fire, says the LORD, and like a hammer that breaks a rock in pieces?
…speak my word faithfully. Though our knowledge of God is incomplete, I read this passage as admonishing us to live out our faith with confidence. I have the pleasure of working with a number of people who live their lives as a testament of their faith. My faith has grown deeper, and I live more confidently as a result.
Gracious God, thank you for the people of faith who surround us and serve as examples of love in action. Amen.
