He began by saying to them, “Today this scripture is fulfilled in your hearing.”

All spoke well of him and were amazed at the gracious words that came from his lips. “Isn’t this Joseph’s son?” they asked.

Jesus said to them, “Surely you will quote this proverb to me: ‘Physician, heal yourself!’ And you will tell me, ‘Do here in your hometown what we have heard that you did in Capernaum.’”

Emphasis Preaching Journal

Frank Ramirez
Road trip. Books, movies, and songs often center on a story about a journey in which someone finds out who they really are, what they really want, how to become what they were meant to be. The journey may be literal — discovering about ourselves through travel — or symbolic — an inward journey or experience that crystalizes self-discovery. In these passages, Jeremiah’s journey is an inward dialogue with God, in which, despite his protestations, it becomes apparent he is to be God’s prophet in the worst of times.
Mark Ellingsen

Frank Ramirez
Jeremiah 1:4-10
Oswald Chambers, in My Utmost for His Highest, wrote, “'I have chosen you!' Keep that note of greatness in your creed. It is not that you have got God but that He has got you.” These words are powerful and, I think, reflect well the call of Jeremiah that we see in this passage. From before the time he was born, God had a plan for Jeremiah. He would be God’s prophet to the nations. 

The Village Shepherd

Call to worship:

Jesus grew and became strong, filled with wisdom; and the favour of God was upon him. As we grow, let us too become strong, with the favour of God upon us.

Invitation to confession:

Lord, we would grow inwardly strong, as you were strong.
Lord, have mercy.

Lord, sometimes we are weak and do that which we later regret.
Christ, have mercy.

Lord, may we hold fast to you and become filled with wisdom.
Lord, have mercy.

Gregory L. Tolle
For just as the body is one and has many members, and all the members of the body, though many, are one body, so it is with Christ. For in the one Spirit we were all baptized into one body -- Jews or Greeks, slaves or free -- and we were all made to drink of one Spirit. Indeed, the body does not consist of one member but of many.... Now you are the body of Christ and individually members of it. (vv. 12-14, 27)

Steven E. Albertin
"The land of the free and the home of the brave." So ends our national anthem sung today at many large public gatherings in our society. It was originally penned in a time of war and has continually reminded us that this is a nation where people will bravely fight to defend their freedoms. But in this day of post-modern relativism, when there are very few causes left which anyone will bravely defend, "freedom" still remains as the great American ideal.
