Grace Greater Than Our Sin

20111211-143600.jpgBefore leaving the book of Jeremiah, there is one final reference which I believe is a critical reference to the character of God. For though the book has been dedicated to the prophecy of Judah’s exile to Babylon, we read these words:

“For Israel and Judah have not been forsaken by their God, the LORD Almighty, though their land is full of guilt before the Holy One of Israel.”Jeremiah 51:5

In one sentence, this captures the gracious nature of our God. For, in exactly the same way, we are not forsaken, even though our guilt should condemn us. This has always been God’s way. His grace will always be bigger than our transgression.
