Please read Ezekiel 20, 21, and 22:1-16. Does anyone else get weary of the rebellion? let’s keep going – what a habit we’ve developed by now. Here’s what I am thinking about today:
“On the day I chose Israel, I revealed myself to them in the country of Egypt, raising my hand in a solemn oath to the people of Jacob, in which I said, ‘I am God, your personal God.” On the same day that I raised my hand in the solemn oath, I promised them that I would take them out of the country of Egypt and bring them into a country that I had searched out just for them, a country flowing with milk and honey, a jewel of a country.’ At that time I told them, ‘Get rid of all the vile things that you’ve become addicted to. Don’t make yourselves filthy with the Egyptian no-god idols. I alone am God, your God’ But they rebelled against me, wouldn’t listen to a word I said” (Ezekiel 20:5-8 MSG)
God gave them so many chances. Lord, help me answer the first time!
