Broken Cisterns 1

Jeremiah 2:13 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.
INTRODUCTION: Water is a symbol of life, both carnal and eternal. In these verses of scriptures God speaks to Israel and declares that they have forsaken Him, the fountain of living waters, and hewed them out cisterns.
The first evil the people committed was forsaking God. We do that when we question the validity of the Bible. We do that when we decide we must become tolerant of ideas and cultures that are contrary to His Word.
God's Word is eternal and it is not going to change with the styles. I am afraid people have not only hewn out cisterns but they are broken cisterns.
Here is something to consider when we you begin to compromise the Word of God
We wallow in the mire of mediocrity, muck through the mud of moderation, and our sleepy souls slovenly slop through the superficial sloughs of self-satisfaction. And then we wonder why we don't feel as close to God as we should.
