Jeremiah 18:1-17
“The Parable of the Potter”

Introduction: Genesis 1:26; 1 John 2:16; Exodus 20:3; Romans 3:23; 2 Corinthians 11:2-3

I.  The Crafting of Clay vs. 1-6
     “The word which came to Jeremiah from the LORD saying, [2] “Arise and go down to the potter's house, and there I will announce My words to you.” [3] Then I went down to the potter's house, and there he was, making something on the wheel. [4] But the vessel that he was making of clay was spoiled in the hand of the potter; so he remade it into another vessel, as it pleased the potter to make. [5] Then the word of the LORD came to me saying, [6] “Can I not, O house of Israel, deal with you as this potter does? ” declares the LORD. “Behold, like the clay in the potter's hand, so are you in My hand, O house of Israel.”

Genesis 1:27; Hebrews 3:13; Ephesians 2:3; Isaiah 1:4; Jeremiah 31:31-33; Mark 2:22; 2 Corinthians 5:17

II. The Correction of Conduct vs. 7-10
     “At one moment I might speak concerning a nation or concerning a kingdom to uproot, to pull down, or to destroy it; [8] if that nation against which I have spoken turns from its evil, I will *relent concerning the calamity I planned to bring on it. [9] “Or at another moment I might speak concerning a nation or concerning a kingdom to build up or to plant it; [10] if it does evil in My sight by not obeying My voice, then I will think better of the good with which I had promised to bless it.”

III. The Chastising of Callousness vs. 11-17
     ““So now then, speak to the men of Judah and against the inhabitants of Jerusalem saying, ‘Thus says the LORD, “Behold, I am fashioning calamity against you and devising a plan against you. Oh turn back, each of you from his evil way, and reform your ways and your deeds.’” [12] “But they will say, ‘It's hopeless! For we are going to follow our own plans, and each of us will act according to the stubbornness of his evil heart.’ [13] “Therefore thus says the LORD, ‘Ask now among the nations, who ever heard the like of this? The virgin of Israel has done a most appalling thing. [14] ‘Does the snow of Lebanon forsake the rock of the open country? Or is the cold flowing water from a foreign land ever snatched away? [15] ‘For My people have forgotten Me, they burn incense to worthless gods and they have stumbled from their ways, from the ancient paths, to walk in bypaths, not on a highway, [16] to make their land a desolation, an object of perpetual hissing; everyone who passes by it will be astonished and shake his head. [17] ‘Like an east wind I will scatter them before the enemy; I will show them My back and not My face in the day of their calamity.’””

Matthew 13:15
