Their worst nightmare came true. Now they are living, if you want to call it that, among the ruins, it's a post apocalyptic nightmare. their worst fears have shown up on their front door. And yet here in the midst of this horrendous tragedy, Jeremiah, whose name means appointed, raised up by God remains. Somehow Jeremiah is still there, taken out of the well where he had been left for dead, he resurfaces to find that all has been lost, just as he predicted, the Temple, the palace, the walls, Jerusalem, all in ruins. And yet, Jeremiah, the one who was appointed, the one who was raised up by God is still there. Like Jeremiah, God's called us to such a time as this, to be faithful witnesses and to remain, as Jeremiah did. To be faithful, to be loving lights, and proclaim God's kingdom, even among the ruins. We live in a world at war and where the walls have fallen down. Ours is not to charge into the fray and try to seize as much power as we can, like Ishmael son of Nethaniah did, the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to pull down strongholds. The warfare of the world tears down others in order to be lifted up. But God's way is to lift up those who have been torn down. Let's join Jeremiah, like Jeremiah, you have been appointed, raised up for God for a time like this. to faithfully, lovingly lift up those who are left among the ruins. That's the prayer that I have for my own soul. That's the prayer that I have for my family for my wife, and my daughters and my son. And that's a prayer that I have for you may be so
