Jeremiah 8:6

Jeremiah has been called "the weeping prophet." He was a preacherís son and God called him to be a prophet. He sent him up and down the land to preach repentance to the people and to warn them of the wrath to come. And as he thought of Godís goodness to His people and of their sin and idolatry, he wept brokenhearted.

In the text Jeremiah tells us that he listened for the penitent cry of one man, but in all the land there was none. No one said, "I have sinned, I am guilty." No one asked the question, "What have I done?"

A man is in a pitiful condition when he never sees that he has done anything wrong. Yet there are many today who never make that admission. But as Christians we know that we are not what we ought to be. As we measure our lives against the life and teachings of Jesus, we see the need to repent and confess our sins every day. Then there are lost sinners who live as if there were no God, no Calvary, no Saviour.

We need to cry out, "What have I done?" This is the question that many never ask, "What have I done?" But today letís sit in judgment, not upon others, but upon ourselves. Letís ask ourselves this pertinent question. And letís answer them honestly before God!

I. What Have I Done With Jesus Christ?

II. What Have I Done With His Church?

III. What Have I Done With The Gospel?

Today, ask yourself these questions. What have I done with Christ. What have I done with His church. What have I done with the Gospel. Will He be satisfied with our answers? Come to Him today-do not delay.
