Competing with Horses (Jeremiah 11:18–12:6)


Jeremiah 11:18–12:4 is the first of a series of intimate conversations between Jeremiah and Yahweh about Jeremiah’s struggles (see 11:18–12:6; 15:10–21; 17:14–18; 18:18–23; 20:7–18). These are known as “Jeremiah’s Confessions.” The first of these Confessions arose from a threat against the prophet’s life from the residents of his hometown. Jeremiah was made aware of the plot, turned to God in prayer, and received both and encouragement of future judgement for his enemies and an exhortation to persevere in the face of even greater hardships to come.

We hear much and think deeply on the biblical qualifications and characteristics of elders appointed to the church, but how often do we consider the responsibility of the congregation to care for its elders? The proper practice of corporate spiritual disciplines requires us to assess our responsibilities to our elders, for the good of the church and the progress of the gospel and the glory of God.
