Names Written in the Earth

Old Testament

A Sermon on Jeremiah 17:13

O LORD, the hope of Israel,
all who forsake you shall be put to shame;
those who turn away from you shall be written in the earth,
for they have forsaken the LORD, the fountain of living water. (ESV)

Exposure of sin and its consequences; man's resistance to God is always active; man rejects the perfect life and accepts a lie; the blindness of man to his own highest interest; the inevitable consequences of man's action; sin exposed; earthly fortune and fame only transient.
