Sermon: "Torn Between Two Worlds” The life of Jeremiah was caught up in the intrigues of the final days of Jerusalem. His message was opposed. For all the words of judgment and rejection found in Jeremiah, Jeremiah also offers words of comfort and hope. God will do a new thing. God’s gracious presence will make itself known even now. An initial group of officials were taken into exile in 592 B.C. Jeremiah writes a letter to them saying to settle in for the long haul: God will be with them. And then Jeremiah speaks of a new covenant, a new relationship with God.
