— Jeremiah 33:6 A pastor friend told the story of a couple who had come to him for counseling.
The couple had been married 40 or so years, and they were both plagued with guilt.
They hadn’t become Christians until their later years, and, prior to that, they had both lived sexually immoral lives.
Although they had been faithful to each other during their marriage, their past dips into immorality were now making them feel guilty for enjoying sex with each other.
The pastor thought for a moment, then asked the couple to name their favorite hymn.
A week later the couple returned to the pastor’s office.
They told him that they had felt foolish at first, but they had sung their favorite hymn together each night.
The wife blushed and the husband got teary eyed as he told the pastor, “When we got to the part that says, ‘My sin, oh the bliss of this glorious thought! after all these years we feel fresh and squeaky clean and new all over again.” Throughout the Bible, God’s relationship with Israel was tested over and over by Israel’s sin.
My sin not in part but the whole, is nailed to the cross and I bear it no more. The book of Jeremiah talks about the horrible result of that sin.
When the prophet received the prophecy recorded in chapter 33, Jerusalem was under siege from the invading Babylonians.
