Text: Ezekiel 16-19; Isaiah 39
In Ezekiel 18, the idea is developed that each of us is judged by God for our own choices. We are held accountable as individuals, apart from our parents or others. The chapter concludes with a plea for repentance – that all who will turn away from their sins and come to the Lord will be forgiven. The Lord has given us the choice between life and death. The final words are these:
“For I have no pleasure in the death of anyone, declares the Lord God; so turn, and live.” (Ezekiel 18:32)
A simple call to make a simple choice. “Turn, and live.” May we all heed thee words, and may we share them with many others. Amen.
in Him, Mike
