A Future and a Hope

Jeremiah 29:10-14 is a beautiful passage of promise, restoration, provision, and hope that was originally delivered to the Jewish community in Babylonian exile. However, it is often the case that Christians take these kinds of Old Testament passages and attempt to claim them as promises made directly to us instead. But are these promises to be treated as such? Are they able to be “named and claimed” today? To whom is the promise of “a future and a hope” made? In this sermon, Pastor Matt Bedzyk looks at one of the most commonly known and often quoted verses of the entire Bible, Jeremiah 29:11, in its original context to understand just exactly what the prophet was saying and if there is any hope contained within for us.
