It is the responsibility of those appointed watchmen amongst God’s people to warn a sinner about his ways. Ezekiel 33:7-9 What warning of Asaph’s speaks to you?
“But my people did not listen to my voice; Israel would not submit to me. So I gave them over to their stubborn hearts, to follow their own counsels.”
So with Israel then, so with humanity today.
Paul speaks of this in Romans 1,
“And since they did not see fit to acknowledge God, God gave them up to a debased mind to do what ought not to be done.”
God calls us to listen.
We read this in Psalm 81,
“O Israel, if you would but listen to me!”
And in Romans 1 we read,
“For his invisible attributes, namely, his eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly perceived, ever since the creation of the world, in the things that have been made. So they are without excuse.”
This is a hard word. WITHOUT EXCUSE.
God calls us back to Him.
In Jesus we are able to listen to tHis voice.
In Jesus we are able to walk in His ways.
In Jesus we have a far better hope than what the world can offer.
This is our King and Saviour – Let us not be afraid to proclaim Him to those around us!
* Creator God – all-powerful, all-knowing, all-seeing … All-everywhere,
Please show us a little more today from Your word of who You are.
Please help us to point those around us to You.
May souls be saved!
