In between the Apostle Paul’s second letter to the Thessalonians and  his first letter to Timothy we read one Psalm and the first two chapters of Jeremiah.

September 12: Psalm 103, Jeremiah 1, Jeremiah 2 (click on the chapter to begin reading).

Psalm 103, of David. There are many songs of praise in the Bible. This is probably the purest of them all. It combines God’s mercifulness and our shortcomings, His healing power and our frailty and above all our very limited life here on earth and the eternity of God.

Jeremiah 1, the call of Jeremiah. The key word in Jeremiah’s call is “before“. Here God confirmed His call with two visions, the branch of an almond tree and a boiling pot tilting away from the north. These were promises of the fulfillment of God’s word and of an impending disaster. God finally assured Jeremiah He will be with him, so don’t worry.

Jeremiah 2. Israel had forsaken the LORD, and God presented His case against Israel.
