Jeremiah 2:13  "For my people have committed two evils; they have forsaken me the fountain of living waters, and hewed them out cisterns, broken cisterns, that can hold no water."

Just a short thought from what God was showing me today. In the early chapters of Jeremiah it shows how God's chosen people Israel forsook him and lusted and followed after their own desires and gods. I thought verse thought verse thirteen did a wonderful job of painting the picture of what was really going on. 

 As I read this I thought of how it applied to my life. When I sin I commit two evils, I forsake the living water that Jesus offers and what my Lord Jesus Christ has done on the cross to pardon and redeem me. And I attempt to find pleasure in "broken cisterns, that can hold no water." Oh that my heart would be broken at this verse. For how can I one who is redeemed, blood-bought, spotless child of God forsake him who drew me out of the bondage of sin? Oh Father may I see my sin as you a righteous and holy God sees it. May my heart be broken and my spirit contrite before you. May I not seek the temporary never-fulfilling pleasures of sin, but rather may I delight myself in you at all times.

May he find you spotless and clean when he comes for you,
