Passage: Jeremiah 29:1-14

Series: Cultivating Our Eden

In Gen 2:4–17, we are formed in a barren wasteland to flourish by God’s presence and work with wisdom. Yet sin exiled us from God’s presence. So what does that mean for our work? Are we still to cultivate in exile? Adam’s exile from Eden sets a pattern that continues throughout the Bible highlighting the consequences of sin. In Jer 29:1–14, we see that we embrace God’s hand in exile to build for shalom with perseverance and prayer.
