She wrote her testimony for a publication of the International Mission Board. I am Deaf, and I know most Deaf people in the world have never heard the story of Jesus. I wanted to tell the story, but I did not have a college education or Bible training. Through the International Mission Board s International Service Corps program, I was able to go and tell! I received training from the IMB about evangelism, church planting, and story telling. I used the Bible stories I learned to plant Deaf churches in Eastern Europe. Then in 2007, I was appointed as a career missionary in Eastern Europe! My friends asked, When are you moving back to the United States? I answered, When every Deaf person has heard the gospel in their heart language sign language! ¹ ¹Adapted from PrayerPoints, Global Deaf Affinity Group (March 2009 issue) International Mission Board.

6 Today s Lesson 1. Recognize Your Commission (1:4-6) A commission means a responsibility to do something. It is an assignment or a job you must do. In this lesson, it is God s commission. God gave Jeremiah a commission or a job to do. God told Jeremiah about his assignment. God has a plan for everyone. We need to recognize (understand) God s plan for our life. Verses 4-5. Jeremiah wrote his life story. First, he told about how God called him to be a prophet. God chose him before he was born. God set him apart for special service. Jeremiah became a prophet to the nations. God carefully chose Jeremiah s parents. Jeremiah was the son of Hilkiah, a priest. Because he was a priest s son, Jeremiah learned about God. He had a good education. He knew the Scriptures. Jeremiah learned how God led the Jewish people out of Egypt and into Canaan, the promised land. He studied about Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. Jeremiah lived in the city of Anathoth, in Judah. Jerusalem was only a few miles away. Jerusalem was the religious capital of Judah. Solomon s temple was in Jerusalem. A few years after the Israelites came to Canaan, they split into two nations Israel in the north and Judah in the south (1 Kings 12:1-17 and 2 Chronicles 10:1-16). In 722 B.C., the king of Assyria conquered Israel and took the people to Assyria (2 Kings 17:1-6). The fall of Israel happened because the people did not follow God. Jeremiah lived nearly one hundred years after the kingdoms were divided. Josiah was king when Jeremiah was young. Manasseh was Josiah s grandfather. Manasseh was an evil king and killed innocent people. You can read in 2 Kings 21:1-17 about all the evil things King Manasseh did. God became very angry with the people in Judah. They no longer worshiped one God. They worshiped idols. God s judgment against Judah is reported in 2 Kings 21: Manasseh s son, Amon, became king. He lived the same way his father lived. He rejected God. He was king for only two years. Josiah was king of Judah after Amon. He was only eight years old when he became king. The people in Judah were far away from God. They did not worship the God who brought them out of Egypt. They forgot how King David worshiped God. They worshiped the idols of the Canaanites who lived around them. 12 Accept Your Commission

7 Josiah was a good king. He instructed the Jews to worship the one true God. He reminded them how they made an agreement with God to follow His rules and laws and obey Him in all things. Josiah tore down the places for idol worship and burned the idols. There was no king like Josiah before or after him. He obeyed the LORD with all his heart, soul, and strength, following all the teachings of Moses (2 Kings 23:25). God was still angry with Judah God calls people of because of the evil things King Manasseh did. Jeremiah wrote, Even so, the LORD did not stop his strong and terrible anger. His anger burned against Judah because of all Manasseh had done to make him angry (2 Kings 23:26). King Josiah died in battle. Josiah s son Jehoahaz became king. He was king for only three months, and Jehoiakim became king of Judah. Another of Josiah s sons, Zedekiah, was the last king of Judah. The sons were not men of God like their father. They let the nation of Judah go back to worshiping idols. all ages TO serve Him....Think about the great men and women of the Bible. We don t remember their AGES. We only remember WHAT they did for God. Verse 6. A prophet tells people what will happen in the future. Jeremiah said God would not always be patient with the people in Judah. They would be punished for their sins if they did not change. Jeremiah knew he must tell the people about God s punishment. We do not know how old Jeremiah was when God called him. He may have been a young boy or about twenty years old. God calls people of all ages to serve Him. Samuel was a young boy when God called him. He grew to be a fine man of God. Moses was a grown man when God called him to lead the Israelites out of Egypt. Think about the great men and women of the Bible. We don t remember their ages. We only remember what they did for God. Jeremiah made excuses to God. He said he was not ready to be a prophet. He told God he was only a boy. Jeremiah thought people would not listen to him because he was young. Have you ever made an excuse to God? We must not make excuses. God has a plan for every person. God created us to serve Him. We should accept God s plan. It is OK to ask God for guidance. It is OK to say, God, I can t do this without your help. Accept God s plan for your life. God will give you strength to do His will. Week of June 5,

8 2. Receive the Lord s Power (1:7-10) Verse 7. Jeremiah received encouragement and power from God. God gave Jeremiah difficult instructions: 1. Do not make excuses. 2. Go everywhere I send you. 3. Say everything I tell you to say. 4. Do not be afraid. Jeremiah felt safe in his small hometown of Anathoth. Everyone knew him there. It was a town where priests lived. They would not harm him when he spoke about God. Anathoth was only a few miles from Jerusalem. Jeremiah traveled the streets of Jerusalem and saw the sinful things people did. He must have felt fear when he realized God wanted him to stand up and preach to people in Jerusalem. He realized people would not accept him. Maybe they would not want to hear God s message. Would anyone listen? Maybe they might laugh at him. They may put him in jail. Verse 8. Jeremiah knew about people who spoke out for God. They were ignored, persecuted, and even killed. God knew Jeremiah was afraid. God promised to protect Jeremiah. Verses God said He gave Jeremiah the right words to say. It was Jeremiah s responsibility to preach to the people in Judah. He must tell them about the destruction of their city and nation. He must also tell them about the hope they had as the chosen children of God. God touches the hearts of people today for His work. He has a plan for every Christian. When God gives us a responsibility, He gives us the ability and strength to do His will. Paul is an example of someone who faced hard jobs for God. Paul never gave up, even when he was persecuted. Paul said, I can do all things through Christ, because He gives me strength (Philippians 4:13). We serve the same God Jeremiah and Paul served. We have the same promise of power and strength through Jesus as they did. We also have the Holy Spirit to help us. God did not force Jeremiah to obey. Jeremiah could have said no to God. We are not forced to do what God tells us to do. We can say no. Often God does not let His people rest until they obey Him. 3. Realize the Lord s Reassurance (1:11-14) Verses The title of this section means we must know how God gives us encouragement. In Bible times, God sometimes spoke to people in visions. Jeremiah had a vision about a branch of an almond tree. The almond tree is called the awake tree because it blossoms in the early spring. People watch it to know 14 Accept Your Commission

9 when spring has begun. God said the almond branch in Jeremiah s vision meant God is watching. God was watching because Jeremiah s prophecy would come true. Verses Jeremiah had another vision. He saw a pot of boiling water tipping over from the north. The boiling water in the pot ran all over Judah. Years ago people heated water in large pots to wash clothes. Children knew never to go near the boiling water. They would be burned badly. God said Jeremiah s vision meant trouble would come from the north to Judah. Disaster would strike. All people in Judah would have pain and trouble. This was the message Jeremiah must tell the people in Judah. God explained the reason for His harsh judgment in verse 16. The people in Judah turned away from God. They worshiped idols and made sacrifices to them. 4. Rely on the Lord s Resources (1:17-19) Verse 17. The title of this section means we must depend on God s strength, not our weakness. God told Jeremiah he must hurry and get ready. He must tell the people in Judah the prophecy just as God showed him. Time was short for the nation of Judah. Jeremiah must speak against everyone including the king, his officers, and the priests. Priests were supposed to lead God s people in worship. Priests in the temple in Jerusalem no longer worshiped God. They made His temple a place for idols. No one in Judah wanted to hear about the coming war. They did not want to know their country was about to be destroyed. Jeremiah must be brave. People would not like him. God did not promise Jeremiah would not be beaten or put in prison. Verses God promised to make Jeremiah strong. He would be like an iron pillar (large post) or a bronze wall. Iron and bronze were the strongest metals at that time. Jeremiah would be strong against all opposition. Important people in Judah would oppose Jeremiah, but with God s help, he would tell God s words. Week of June 5,

10 What About You? God made you. No other person on earth is like you. You are special because God made you for a purpose. He has a job for you to do for Him. Remember, He gives strength and helps His people when they obey Him in the job He has chosen for them. What job has God given you to do in this world? Will you be like Jeremiah and tell people about God and how to obey Him? Maybe you are chosen to be a good mother or father. Perhaps your job in the world is to pray for others. There are many jobs in God s kingdom. He has one for you. Pray for God to show you the job He has for you. Obey Him and let Him lead you in His work. Applying the Lesson Find God s promise to Jeremiah in verse 19. Fill in the blanks: They will against you, but they will not you, because am with you to you! says the Lord. Another promise from God is in Philippians 4:13. Fill in the blanks. I do all through, because he gives me. List some ways you can use what you have learned in this lesson. How can this lesson help you grow in Christ? A Verse to Remember: The Lord spoke His word to me, saying, Before I made you in your mother s womb, I chose you. Before you were born, I set you apart for a special work (Jeremiah 1:4-5). 16 Accept Your Commission

13 Week of June 5, 2011 Accept Your Commission Background Study Outline 1. divine Commission (Jeremiah 1:1-10) 2. divine Confirmation (1:11-16) 3. divine Challenge (1:17-19) Lesson Material 1. recognize Your Commission (Jeremiah 1:4-6) 2. receive the Lord s Power (1:7-10) 3. realize the Lord s Reassurance (1:11-14) 4. rely on the Lord s Resources (1:17-19) Bible Truth Deaf believers can know God s presence in any responsibility He gives them. The Bible in Context (Jeremiah 1:1) Jeremiah came from a family of priests. The priests were descendants of Aaron and were supposed to be the spiritual leaders of Israel. They were in charge of the sacrifices and offerings in the tabernacle and temple. They were supported by special offerings and the Levites were supported by tithes (Numbers 18:20-32). They were the scribes or teachers of the Law (Deuteronomy 31:9-13). They also became the ones to interpret the Law. They became a very powerful influence in the nation. Explore Anathoth (Jeremiah 1:1) Anathoth was a city about three miles northeast of Jerusalem. It was one of thirteen towns set aside for the priests who were descendants of Aaron (Joshua 21:19; 1 Chronicles 6:54-60). In addition to Jeremiah, two other men in the Bible were from Anathoth. Abiezer was one of David s thirty chief soldiers (2 Samuel 23:27). Jehu was one of the kings of Judah (1 Chronicles 12:3). One of Jeremiah s prophecies was demonstrated in Anathoth (Jeremiah 32:6-42). The city was resettled when the Jews returned from Babylon (Nehemiah 7:27; 11:31-35). Week of June 5,

14 Step One Overview Today begins a series of lessons from the Book of Jeremiah. Encourage your class members to read the entire book, not just the verses selected for each lesson. Help them keep up with the chronology of these lessons. Ask someone to tell about Jeremiah s home town, Anathoth, from Explore, above and other resources. Explain the meaning of the word commission as a special responsibility given to someone by the government, or in this case, by God. Our missionaries are commissioned by the International Mission Board. Make the lesson come alive! Print out the Great Commission from Matthew 28:19-20, and give a copy to each class member. At the top of the paper write, Your Commission as a Christian. Step TWO Recognize Your Commission (Jeremiah 1:4-6) Use the discussion in the Pupil material to tell about Jeremiah s background, his call, and his response. Emphasize how God called and prepared Jeremiah. Jeremiah learned about God while he grew up in the home of a priest. God always gives us an opportunity to prepare for the work He calls us to do. Step Three Receive the Lord s Power (1:7-10) Review the instructions given to Jeremiah in verse 7. (See the discussion in the Pupil material.) Step Four Realize the Lord s Reassurance (1:11-14) Discuss how God often used dreams and visions in the Old Testament. Today we have the Bible to tell us His truths. Step Five - rely on the Lord s Resources (1:17-19) Emphasize how we must always depend on God s strength and not focus on our weakness. Step Six - Conclusion Review the lesson using What These Verses Tell Us in the Pupil material. Call attention to the significant information between this lesson and next week s lesson from chapters 3 and 4. Close with prayer that each class member will be ready to hear and answer God s call. 120 Accept Your Commission
