SAA Notes

This portico is the very one that Jesus entered in Jerusalem Below, riding on the donkey’s colt. It is presently walled up. Dwell on verse 2 and what it says! We do right to trust in the Lord!

SJA Notes

* Mighty God, please show us today from Your word how we should behave as Your people.

“… and I looked, and behold, the glory of the LORD filled the temple of the LORD. And I fell on my face.”

See how Ezekiel responds to being in God’s presence.

The idea of falling on our face might be strange to us today.

To be so overcome in the presence of such awe and majesty that the only response is to fall on our faces.

Is this a foreign understanding for us today?

May it be something we wrestle with. Especially as we come together in our Sunday corporate worship, as we are brought into the throne room of our God, the heavenly realities.

Are we humble before our King as we enter His presence?

We should be. And if not now, then it will be an absolute truth for all mankind on that final day (but better by far to be humbled now than then).

May we wrestle with our pride and continually strive to put on humility as our heart-clothing.

* Loving God,

Thank You for doing what we could never do.

Taking the just punishment for our rebellion against You on Yourself, so that we (the rebellious) could obtain grace and mercy, Your favour.

Please humble us each day Lord, that we might be Your people in spirit and in truth.

Amen.
