Jeremiah 3: 14-17

Return, O faithless children, says the Lord, for I am your master; I will take you, one from a city and two from a family, and I will bring you to Zion.I will give you shepherds after my own heart, who will feed you with knowledge and understanding. And when you have multiplied and increased in the land, in those days, says the Lord, they shall no longer say, “The ark of the covenant of the Lord.” It shall not come to mind, or be remembered, or missed; nor shall another one be made. At that time Jerusalem shall be called the throne of the Lord, and all nations shall gather to it, to the presence of the Lord in Jerusalem, and they shall no longer stubbornly follow their own evil will.

The Ark of the Covenant and More

They will in those days no longer say, “The ark of the covenant of the Lord.” They will no longer think of it, or remember it, or miss it, or make another.” (Jeremiah 3: 16) The Ark of the Covenant is a big deal in the Old Testament. God gives the blueprints for the ark to Moses at Sinai, and the ark becomes the holiest object in the world.  It’s the seat where God sits on earth.  Yet Jeremiah foretells a day when no one will even miss it. God has an even greater intimacy in mind for those who are faithful. Alice Camille, 2010: A Book of Grace-Filled Days © 2009 Loyola Press, Chicago IL.
