You've Forsaken Me:
Repent and Return

Jeremiah,
a prophet appointed by God, spoke a hard message to the people of his day.
It's still God's message today - a call to listen to His Word. Heeding Jeremiah's message can bring healing
and hope to all.

 

We are trying to play
without the ball
when the church
tries to evangelize
BEFORE she has repented.

The church can do many things AFTER she has repented
but nothing
until she first repents.

--Vance Havner (1901-1986), pastor, author, and Bible conference speaker.
