Therefore thus says the Lord: “If you return, I will restore you, and you shall stand before Me. If you utter what is precious, and not what is worthless, you shall be as My mouth. -Jeremiah 15:19
Poor Jeremiah! Yet why do we say so? The weeping prophet was one of the choicest servants of God and honored by Him above many. He was hated for speaking the truth. The word which was so sweet to him was bitter to his hearers, yet he was accepted of his Lord. He was commanded to abide in his faithfulness, and then the Lord would continue to speak through him. He was to deal boldly and truthfully with men and perform the Lord’s winnowing work upon the professors of his day, and then the Lord gave him this word: “Thou shalt be as my mouth.”
What an honor! Should not every preacher, yea, every believer, covet it? For God to speak by us, what a marvel! We shall speak sure, pure truth; and we shall speak it with power. Our word shall not return void; it shall be a blessing to those who receive it, and those who refuse it shall do so at their peril. Our lips shall feed many. We shall arouse the sleeping and call the dead to life.
O dear reader, pray that it may be so with all the sent servants of our Lord.

Sunday Morning | Pastor Steve Wainright | Walk By the Spirit | Galatians 5:16-18
“But I say, walk by the Spirit, and you will not gratify the desires of the flesh.” -Galatians 5:16
You cannot live your life by faith without walking by the Spirit. Your biggest battle is not with Satan, but with yourself, and it’s a continual, moment-by-moment battle. How do you walk by the Spirit? Let the Word of Christ dwell in you richly.

“Indeed, I count everything as loss because of the surpassing worth of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord. For his sake I have suffered the loss of all things and count them as rubbish, in order that I may gain Christ.” -Philippians 3:8
I pray that we will be a people who refuse to gorge our spiritual stomachs on the entertaining pleasures of this world, because we have chosen to find our satisfaction in the eternal treasure of His Word. -David Platt in Radical
And we all, with unveiled face, beholding the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the same image from one degree of glory to another. For this comes from the Lord who is the Spirit. -2 Corinthians 3:18
You behold the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ whenever you are in His Word. The mirror of God’s Word shows our ugly sinfulness, but also shows the beauty of Christ’s holiness. It changes (Greek: “metamorpheo”) you into His image.
You become more and more like the people you’re around. The more you are beholding His glory, the more you’ll become like Him.
