Look the cisterns are cracked and dry

I was reminded today in our sermon that no matter how much we try to find satisfaction and happiness in things other than God, we will always fail. It’s only through developing a deep and intimate relationship with God that we can be fully content in our lives.

Jeremiah 2:13 – “My people have committed two sins: They have forsaken me, the spring of living water and have dug their own cisterns, broken cisterns that cannot hold water.


Two sins, just two things yet they are massive, the first we read of in this passage, rejecting God, walking out on him, turning our backs as if we can do this thing alone, we throw all he’s done back in his face, turning away from amazing grace, we think we’re better than God, than God who made the universe, we think we can immerse ourselves in sin and walk alone and not with him, let’s face it we’ve sought to find our own supply, but look the cisterns are cracked and dry, the early promise not fulfilled the buckets lie empty and unfilled the way we walked once seemed like fun, but now the water’s gone those days are done, contentment has not been found, it’s time to turn our lives around to seek the water of life, to recognise God’s sacrifice to see the sin that lies within and humbly give our lives to Him.
