This week’s sermon title is “Circumcision.” We are each required to decide to whom we will listen, that is, whom we will believe. Today’s text is from fairly early-on in Jeremiah’s ministry. He is confused. He thinks the Lord has deceived the people of Israel. There were prophets declaring peace to the people, while Jeremiah saw only disaster coming. To whom do you think the people listened! Jesus speaks to this matter when He warns about putting stumbling blocks in the way of others. That’s not a good deal for either side! What’s needed on all sides is a circumcised heart. Without it, deception is inevitable.
