God asked Jeremiah to make a ridiculously risky investment, to buy a field that was about to be taken by the invading Babylonians. God did this to show that anything is possible with God! Jesus asks the same thing of us – to invest our money and our lives into His kingdom. Many people think it is foolish to invest generously into something as tenuous as “the
ministry of the gospel.” But that is what we see in our Savior Jesus, he invested his very life, shedding his blood for sinful mankind. What a risk! Jesus did….and we will! #buythefield.
Old Testament Lesson: Jeremiah 32:1-15 (Jeremiah buys a field – a risky investment)
Gospel Lesson: Luke 19:1-10 (Jesus invests in a sinner named Zaccheus – a risky investment)
