"For my people have committed two evils; they have forsaken me the fountain of living waters, and hewed them out cisterns, broken cisterns, that can hold no water." (Jeremiah 2:13)
Today's Morsel: Everything seems to be a substitute these days. We have substitute teachers., substitute pastors, and substitute employees. We even use substitute sugar, drinks, and milk in trying to meet our needs and the needs of others. We have gotten to the point that we'll take anything if we don't have the real thing because we don't have patience to wait. It seems that the people of the world don't want the real thing anymore. Many of them are being served a fake Jesus and they don't even know it because they have become so accustom to substitutes. The Lord told Jeremiah, "For my people have committed two evils; they have forsaken me the fountain of living waters, and hewed them out cisterns, broken cisterns, that can hold no water." Friend, when you go away from Jesus for something else that you think will satisfy your thirsty soul, you are soon going to find out that it doesn't meet your need. Only Jesus can satisfy your soul. He is the real deal, there is no substitute for Him.
Sing: For only Jesus can satisfy your soul, and only He can change your life and make it whole; He'll give you peace you never knew, sweet love and joy and heaven, too, for only Jesus can satisfy your soul!
