Last week, we memorized the first half of a two part memorization series. This is one of my favorite passages in the Bible.
This week, we will memorize the rest. It’s found in Jeremiah 29:13-14:
The first sentence is perhaps my favorite phrase in the entire Bible.
“You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart.”
God’s promise here is clear: when we seek him whole-heartedly, we will find him. He goes on to promise: “I will be found by you.”
That is the very definition of Good News.
The latter part of this passage is more specifically directed to the original hearers, as they were facing exile to a foreign nation. But the principle underlying these words can apply to us as well. The only difference is that we are not taken captive by a foreign nation; we have been taken captive by sin.
God’s promise is one of rescue. And that is very good news!
