Pastor Richard C. Klueg

Not a Clue

Jeremiah 2:35

Hey, it’s December. Where’s my Christmas message?
One issue in which it is fatal to be clueless.

Clueless About Oneself

I am innocent

“God knows my heart!”

Were they really that bad? Are we?

“Know thyself”

Clueless About Judgment

Surely his anger has turned from me.

Some remedial instruction on Jesus and judging

· “Judge not”

· Commands to judge

· Jesus as the Judge

I will bring you into judgment for saying “I have not sinned.”

The most difficult words to say

Glacier 511

Clueless About Salvation

Matthew 9:13 ...For I came not to call the righteous, but sinners.

Get a Clue!

Pastor Richard C. Klueg

American Idols

Jeremiah 2:28

Idols Are Created
The gods that you made for yourself

The mind of man “is a perpetual factory of idols” - John Calvin

What is an idol?

  • Physical idols
  • Idols of the heart & mind

For as many as your cities are your gods, O Judah

A “cafeteria Christ” or a “designer Jesus”?

Idols Are Challenged
your time of trouble

Idols are challenged to give:

  • Meaning to life
  • Transcendent truth
  • Absolute morality

Idols Are Crushed
Where are the gods …?

Let them arise, if they can save you

  • Meaning
  • Truth
  • Morality

 

Little children, keep yourselves from idols—1 John 5:21

Me, Lord?

Jeremiah 1:4-10

Your purpose in life

The Call
God made him:
I formed you in the womb

God knew him: I knew you

God set him apart: I consecrated you

God guided him:  I appointed you as a prophet to the nations

 

The Confirmation
Emotion:
Ah!

Devotion: Lord God

Hesitation: I don’t know how to speak, for I am only a youth

The Lord’s confirmation

The Commission
I have set you this day over nations and over kingdoms

Tearing down & building up

God has prepared you for His call, and will enable you in His call

Pastor Richard C. Klueg

Turning Away from God Is Really Stupid

Jeremiah 2:1-13

People do stupid things

Turning Away from Love
I remember the devotion of your youth, your love as a bride

Song of Solomon 8:7 If a man offered for love al the wealth of his house, he would be utterly despised.

God’s great love for us

Turning Away from Perfection

What wrong did your fathers find in me?

Being with the Lord and doing things His way is always best by far

They went far from me, and went after worthlessness, and became worthless

They had put God:

  • Out of their memory
  • Out of their lifestyle
  • Out of their religion

Turning Away from the Best Life

They have forsaken me, the fountain of living waters

  • Clean water
  • Cool water
  • Constant water

And hewn out cisterns for themselves, broken cisterns that can hold no water

Do the smart thing: Go with God!
