Second Thought

Looking again at news and commentary

Excerpts from a commencement address given at Garrett-Evangelical Theological Seminary, May 29, 1992, by Sharon Neufer Emswiler

"Although Jeremiah was disturbed by the wickedness of his people and their approaching doom, nevertheless, he was able to keep on hoping. ... While he brought a message of judgment, he also spoke a message of hope. 'The days are surely coming when I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel and the house of Judah.... I will put my law within them, and I will write it on their hearts, and I will be their God, and they shall be my people.'
