Quick Take from Jeremiah

I'm currently reading Jeremiah. This passage, Jeremiah 16:19-21 caught my eye:

19 O Lord, my strength and my fortress,
my refuge in time of distress,
to you the nations will come
from the ends of the earth and say,
“Our fathers possessed nothing but false gods,
worthless idols that did them no good.

Wow, isn't that great? The day will come when all nations will come before God to admit that idols are trash! There's more:

20 Do men make their own gods?
Yes, but they are not gods!”

More of the same, even better!

21 “Therefore I will teach them—
this time I will teach them
my power and might.
Then they will know
that my name is the Lord.

And that is what God is doing NOW in the form of world missions! As we support our work in Thailand, Laos, Kenya and elsewhere, we are part of the fulfillment of this prophecy!

Is that cool or what?
