Something to Boast About
Jeremiah 7-9
November 11, 2018
Jeremiah Old Testament

Whenever someone begins a sentence with “I don’t mean to brag, but…,” you better get ready for some bragging! People often have the tendency to talk about themselves—who they are, what they’ve accomplished, how successful they’ve become, etc. But we often forget that the Bible teaches that everything we have, everything we are, and everything we’ve accomplished is from the gracious hand of the Lord! In today’s study from Jeremiah 9, Pastor Gary reminds us that if we are going to boast, boast about the Lord. Brag about who He is—that He exercises kindness, justice, and righteousness in the earth; that He is personable and knowable; that He is a good God who loves us and rescues us from sin and death. If you want to boast, boast about the Lord!
