Jeremiah 23:1-8

A quick read through any newspaper will remind you that the world is filled with injustice and corruption, often at the hands of the very people who should be ensuring justice and peace. The prophet Jeremiah knew all about it. He lived in a time and a place where injustice and corruption ran rampant and was openly practiced by the leaders of the land. Today we will look at God’s response to injustice, both then and now and how Jesus ultimately brings hope and peace into the world.
