Righteousness and the Law | Sermon

Pastor Bramwell preached this sermon on Jeremiah 7:1-11 on the Tenth Sunday after Trinity, August 21, 2022.

What kind of words did God’s people trust in Jeremiah’s day, to no avail? (Jer. 7:8)

Have you ever, and/or do you now take God and the cross of Christ for granted? Jeremiah’s warning is for you, too! Repent.

Which Commandments does the Lord cite in Jeremiah 7:9-10? (The definitions included in the sermon are found in Luther’s Small Catechism.)

Does God care about our sins?

What chapter(s) of Romans helps us understand our Jeremiah reading? Why are you not a hypocrite when you point to Christ’s crucifixion for the forgiveness of sins?


St. Mark Lutheran Church posts Rev. Bramwell’s sermons online for the sake of the members of our congregation who are unable to gather with us due to illness, work, etc. This resource is not intended to encourage anyone from gathering in person around God’s Word and Sacraments. Matthew 18:20 and Hebrews 10:25 make it clear that God’s Divine Service is meant to be experienced physically with other Christians.

We give thanks to God that these sermons are a blessing to you and pray that if you’re in Humboldt County, you will join us on Sunday mornings at 10:30 AM as God wills. (See the map below for directions.) If you’re not within driving distance of Ferndale CA, we encourage you to use the Church Locator at LCMS.org to find a church near you so you can gather in person with the communion of saints in your area.
