chronological day 232 :)

Continuing with Ezekiel – maybe this isn’t as tough as I thought it would be – we’re making progress even through the prophets!  Please read Ezekiel 17, 18, and 19.  Does anything stand out to you today?  Here’s my highlight:

“The upshot is this, Israel: I’ll judge each of you according to the way you live. So turn around! Turn your backs on your rebellious living so that sin won’t drag you down. Clean house. No more rebellions, please. Get a new heart! Get a new spirit! Why would you choose to die, Israel? I take no pleasure in anyone’s death. Decree of GOD, the Master. “Make a clean break! Live!” (Ezekiel 18:30-32 MSG)

The upshot IS that the people would be judged according to their own behavior.  That’s the upshot for us today as well: it means that we choose our consequences, right?  the  promise is that God will judge us fairly – let’s do our best!

There’s always a chance and another chance and a another chance with the Lord. Israel complained that God wasn’t fair, but it wasn’t a matter of fairness; they were being judged for their own actions. People today still complain about fairness…. God is a righteous judge.

    Throughout the passage GOD was speaking saying son of man! I wonder the implication on this because I am so used to hearing my son or the word children or Israel but son of man seems to be distancing ourselves from the Lord. Maybe I’m putting too much thought into it. It seems as the generations are growing so is our arrogance and relationship with GOD. Mrs Jennifer hit it right on the nail, we are being judged on our own account. The last passage for today’s reading says GOD will scatter us and he did. Purged us and he did. Still new to this Bible reading and I’m scared of for sure if I steer wrong but know GOD loves me and that’s enough to keep me right.
