Introduction

Getting the Most Out of Jeremiah: Demanding Love
This section introduces the topic, explains the structure followed in each study and offers tips for those approaching the study on their own as well as those participating in a group.

Session One

Hearing God's Call
How does the word of the Lord shape Jeremiah's identity? How has Scripture shaped you?
Jeremiah 1

Session Two

Empty Religion in the Lord's Temple
In verse 11 God declares that he is watching. If God were to tell you that he was especially watching your church, what do you think he would see and say?
Jeremiah 7:1-29

Session Three

The Belt of Commitment
What is the point of this object lesson? One purpose of a belt is to tie things together. What things might come apart in your life if you were no longer bound to the Lord?
Jeremiah 13:1-17

Session Four

Shaped by the Potter
Being reshaped by the divine potter isn't always a pleasant experience. Describe one or two times when you have been aware of God's shaping hand on your life.
Jeremiah 18:1-17

Session Five

The Righteous Branch
The prophet and priest look to Baal and their own conjured-up dreams rather than to the Lord. What false gods might wayward spiritual leaders be looking to today?
Jeremiah 23:1-24

Session Six

Good FigsA Heart to Know God

Christians are to consider themselves blessed by God in the midst of difficult circumstances. What can we learn from the experience of the exiles that can help us experience God's blessing in difficult times?
Jeremiah 24

Session Seven

The Cup of God's Wrath
The central image of this portion of Jeremiah is the cup of God's wrath. Who is the cup for? What does it say about God that he is willing to judge his own people as well as the rest of the nations?
Jeremiah 25:15-38

Session Eight

The Field of Hope
Jeremiah's purchase of the field doesn't fit with his message about sure and certain judgment. When might it be appropriate to allow ourselves to be taken advantage of in order to communicate a spiritual truth?
Jeremiah 32

Session Nine

Unsinkable Faith
Jeremiah ends up in the well, sunk down deep into the mud. How has God prepared Jeremiah for just such a situation? In what ways can Christians end up in "wells" today?
Jeremiah 38
