Day 246

Today’s Reading – Ezekiel 23-24


You will be held accountable for your betrayals, and you will bear the sins of your idols. Then you will know that I am the LORD God.  Ezekiel 23:49 CEB

Ezekiel again reminds the people that for their sins they will be accountable.

Note the YOU will be held accountable and not the collective ‘they’ will be held accountable.

Why will there be an accounting? SO that everyone will know that God is God.

The Holy and righteous nature of God must remain consistent. Judgement must come for actions that are outside of God’s decree.

Now all this talk is about the judgement of Jerusalem, so what does it have to do with us?

Simple – – the nature of God has not changed.

We now have the opportunity for grace and mercy in the face of judgement through Christ.

Do you know the man?

I am a United Methodist Pastor and have the privilege of serving as the Senior Pastor for the church of my childhood. I preach in a place I once was an acolyte. I love to preach, but more importantly I love to teach. I firmly believe that Faith Matters and should affect how we live. This blog is a place where I come to share the randomness that is life and faith ... and the intersection of the two.
