What would JEREMIAH do? Teaching at Martindale Christian Fellowship…


I’m honored to be invited back to Martindale Christian Fellowship Church in Canton, Ohio by Senior Pastor Steve Manko and his team to teach at their morning worship on Sunday, May 5th. My topic will be…What Would Jeremiah Do?…Representing Christ Well Amidst a Culture in Freefall.

JeremiahJeremiah was called by God to serve as a prophet and deliver a very difficult message to the leaders of the Jewish people during a time when pagan worship, sexual immorality and child sacrifice were officially sanctioned by the leaders of the nation. His ministry spanned the time from the reign of King Josiah, Judah’s last “good king” through the siege and destruction of Jerusalem by King Nebuchadnezzar and the Babylonian army, an attempt by a remnant of Judah to flee to Egypt, and the beginning of the Babylonian captivity. Jeremiah experienced significant persecution and discomfort because he was faithful to his call to “speak truth to power” and communicated a message from God in direct opposition to the culture of the day.

We’ll look to Jeremiah’s life for insight and understanding as to how God wants His servants to carry themselves during a time when remaining faithful to the teachings of Scripture is decidedly uncool.

I’d like to take this opportunity to invite as many of our followers as possible to join me at Martindale Christian Fellowship in Canton at 10:30 AM on Sunday, May 5th. Driving directions to the church can be obtained here. Hope to see you there!

    Hi Carrie,

    I’m pretty sure the church makes available past sermons on CDs. I’ll talk with them about how we might make the message available to our blog followers.
