Sermon on Jeremiah 1:4-10 preached at Grace Ev. Lutheran Church by Pastor James Huebner. 
Bad news is not only crime, poverty, disease, and inequality. These spring from the real bad news: sin, guilt, judgment, and death. Only the gospel can attack and destroy the world’s greatest problems, and the gospel is revealed in the words and works of Christ. Here in Jeremiah 1, the Lord called Jeremiah to proclaim law and gospel to destroy the devil's lies and give us confidence in our Savior-God in life and in death.
