Don’t Lose Sight of God
Jeremiah 36-39
February 24, 2019
Jeremiah Old Testament

The long-prophesied, tragic result of disobeying God has finally come to the Jewish people with the destruction of Jerusalem as outlined in Jeremiah 39. It was all avoidable, but God’s people did not heed the warnings of the prophets, so God’s discipline came upon them in the form of the Babylonian army in 586 B.C. One sad story in the midst of this scene is that of King Zedekiah of Judah whose sons were killed in front of him and whose eyes were then gouged out by King Nebuchadnezzar of Babylon. Truth is, Zedekiah had lost his vision long before his eyes were put out. The loss of his physical eyes was only symptomatic of a larger problem—Zedekiah had lost sight of God. Join Pastor Gary today as we see four points from Zedekiah’s life as a warning to us about not losing sight of God.
