Scripture Sunday: Jeremiah 1:5

Jeremiah 1—Commission. •Person for the commission: the clan, city, and crowns (list of kings) tell of the person and times of Jeremiah. •Prenatal in the commission: God decreed Jeremiah’s call before he was born. •Protesting the commission: Jeremiah felt he was too young. •Provision in the commission: God provided the message to speak. •Promise in the commission: God would be with Jeremiah. •Purpose of the commission: to root out, pull down, destroy, throw down, build, plant. •Pronouncement in the commission: two signs are given to Jeremiah in which God pronounced judgment on Israel. •Precaution in the commission: do not let the people’s faces cower you. •Protection in the commission: God would protect Jeremiah when he was treated roughly. –Butler’s Daily Bible Reading
