Who Me?

You ever find the Bible humorous?  Look at Jeremiah 1:3 – 4 – we do not usually associate that book with
humor, but humor me (sorry about the play on words).  In verse three the Lord outlines His program for Jeremiah, look at what He says:
When God asks you to do something do you ever think He must have gotten it wrong>  Thoughts at DTTB.
  • I formed you in the womb
  • I knew you before you were born
  • I consecrated you 
  • I have appointed you a prophet
Pretty clear.  This assignment has been set down since before Jeremiah’s birth.

Now look at Jeremiah’s response, essentially he says, “Who, me?  You must have the wrong Jeremiah, I am just a kid and can’t talk.”  It’s funny because that is a lot of our responses to God’s call is it not?  “You want me to do what?  I am sorry I think you must have the wrong number.”

Like the sovereign creator of the universe would get it wrong.  But we resist.  There are a number of reasons for that.  The most generous is that we are humble and overwhelmed by God entrusting us with something to do.  The worst may be that we simply do not want to obey.  Either way we resist.

It’s humorous.
