Fruitful in Exile

     Text:  Jeremiah 29:1-13

 

SENT INTO EXILE

      God is Sovereign over nations and leaders

      By His plans He sent the Israelites into Exile.

 

      When results are not what you want,                 

      Do not presume that God has not heard your 
            prayers.                                      

      He still has a plan that he is pursuing

 

LIVING IN EXILE

      Build Houses and live in them

      Plant gardens and eat their produce

      Marry and establish families

 

      Seek the welfare of your city                   

      Pray for the land where you live  

      Seek the welfare of the land

 

REFUSE TO BE DECEIVED

      Do not believe the claims that all will be good

      Do not believe the claims of soon coming doom

      Look to God and understand His plans

    

      There will always be false prophets                    

      God has a plan for our future                  

      His plan is for us to know Him     

 

IN THE MIDST OF A HOSTILE WORLD

      Call upon God

      Pray to God

      Seek Him with all your heart

 

      Trust His plan and providence

      Trust His promises

      Trust His person

 

LIVING AS A CHRISTIAN TODAY

      Seek to Please God in all you Do

      Seek to be loving to all you meet

      Pray for the welfare of your city and nation

 

      Pursue peace with everyone                                           

      Be a productive member of society                                 

      Obey the laws of the land                                    

      Share Jesus with the world                                              

 

GOD HAS PROMISED

     That he will be found by those who seek Him

     That He plans for a future and a hope for His own

 

      Our future is not of this earth                              

      Our hope is Jesus Christ alone     

 

LAY UP YOUR TREASURES AND HOPE IN HEAVEN

                                    And

LIVE WITH JOY AND LOVE IN THE LAND OF EXILE TODAY

 

Footnotes:
Cultivate a level of emotional detachment from the troubles
of this world.  We are sojourners, aliens in this world.  Do not
be so closely tied to the fortunes and failures of this world.

Do not fear, nor fret, nor anxiously worry about things over
which you have little influence or responsibility.

 

Seek God with all your heart, and He promises that  
“I will be found by you.”
 Live with Joy and Love in the land of exile today
