June 10, 2021 – Ezekiel 12-16

The Lord to Ezekiel: “Son of man, you dwell in the midst of a rebellious house, who have eyes to see, but see not, who have ears to hear, but hear not, for they are a rebellious house” (12:2). How terrible to be described thusly! All Israel. The prophets. The elders. Like in Jeremiah’s day, from the least to the greatest, all had transgressed. It shouldn’t have been, for the Lord had made his people to flourish, he had adorned her with fine clothes and silk, he had placed ornaments and jewelry on her, and the nation was beautiful so that her renown had gone forth among the nations. How good God had been to Israel, and how treacherous, in return, had she been toward him. What a faithless bride!


Got me thinking: “This is how God showed his love among us: He sent his one and only Son into the world that we might live through him” (1 John 4:9). Not like Israel, but like David, let us always sing “Bless the Lord, O my soul, and all that is within me, bless his holy name! Bless the Lord, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits” (Psalm 103:1,2).


Give thanks with a grateful heart

Give thanks to the Holy One

Give thanks because He's given

Jesus Christ, His Son.

And now let the weak say, I am strong

Let the poor say, I am rich

Because of what the Lord has done for us. –Henry Smith

2 Timothy is one of those Pauline letters that has such a personal touch to it. He is writing to young Timothy. He appears to know Timothy’s family well: “I am reminded of your sincere faith, a fai
