JUNIOR TOPIC-Tho Story of th
INTERMEDIATE AND SENIOR TOPIC
Jeremiah, the Courageous Prophet.
YOUNO PEOPLE AND ADULT TOPIC
Jercmtah'B Scrvlco to Ills Nation.
Jeremiah was one of the last proph
ets of Judnh. He saw the nation go
Into tho llabylonlnn Captivity and Je
rusalem destroyed, after which ho
went Into Egypt. He was n lonely,
misunderstood and unpopulnr prophet.
Ho was most bitterly hated nnd per
secuted. Ills own countrymen turned
against him. He was placed In stocks
and then thrown Into'n horrible dun
geon from which he nnrrovviy escaped
with his life. The teacher should give
n little sketch of big life. The tul
lowing Is suggested:
1. Tils Call (1:2-10). ;
2. Ills Commission (1 :1M0)'.
a. Ills Sympathetic Heart (4:10).
4. Ills Great Sorrows (10:1.".-21).
5. The Divine Power Which Urged
Tllm Forward and Sustained 111m
IJecnuso ho wns cnllcd upon to
prophesy against his own nation and
nt the command of God urged them to
surrender to the P.abylonlnns, be was
regarded t-s a traitor guilty of treason
ngnlnst hi own nntlon.
I. The Rechabltes' Tcct (vv. 1-5).
In the days of Jeholnklm, tho Lord
charged Jeremiah to bring the Hechn
hltea Into tho house of tho Lord and
test them regarding tho drinking of
wine. This he did In a place whero
the pwplo might behold them, the aim
being to teach Judah by exnmple.
The father of tho Hochabltcs had
given command tlint they should not
drink wine. Their filial obedlenco
put to shame the children of Judah
for their lack of obedience. Jonadab,
tho father of the Hcchnbltes, was only
n man but the one whose commnnds
Judah disregarded was tho Almighty
God. their Creator and Savior. It Is
God's plan that every man be tested.
Doing n freo ngent, he can have char
acter only through testing.
II. The Filial Loyalty of the Rec
habltes (vv. C-ll).
Though they were out of their nwn
country In the midst of a foreign peo
ple they refused to drink wine, de
claring that they had been true to tJio
Instructlons of Jonadab nil their lives.
It Is n fine thing when children re
member their fathers nnd render
obedience to their commands.
IIL The Loyalty of the Rechabltes
In Contrast With the Disloyalty xsf
Judah (vv. 12-10).
1. The Appenl (vv. 13, 11). Ho
made the appeal on the basis of the
filial loyalty of the Hechabltcs. Ho
nlso reminded them that ho had
spoken to them In person, rising up
early to do so.
2. The Ministry of the Prophets
(vv. 15, 10). When the people fnlled
to render obedience to God, ho sent
to them tho prophets who plended
with them to amend their ways by
turning nwny from their idols. Mat
thew Henry Indicates tho points of
contrast somewhat as follows: (1)
The Hechabltcs were obedient to on
who was hut n mnn; the Jews dis
obeyed the Infinite and eternal God.
(2) Jonadab was dead and could not
know of their disloyalty or correct
them for It. God Is all-knowing and
lives forever nnd will punish for dis
obedience. (3) The Hcchnbltes wa
never reminded of their obligations,
but God sent Ills prophets to sponlc
to Ills people. (4) Jonadab left tho
charge but no estate to support tho
charge, but God gave the people n
goodly lnnd and prospered them In It.
(5) God never assigned Ills people a
task as hard as Jonndab's, but God's
people disobeyed Him whilo tho
Rechabltes obeyed their father.
IV. Judnment Upon the Jews for
Disobedience (y. 17).
God declared that Ho would bring
Judgment upon them nccordlng to
whut IIo hnd snld. Judgment Is laid
upon those who disobey and rebel
V. Reward of the Rechabltes for
Their Loyalty (vv. 18, 10).
Hecnuso they hnd been true to tho
commnnds of Jonadab, they Rhould
always have n representative before
God. God has Mich n regard for filial
obedience that IIo lets no act go uiv
