The Calling/Preparation

Reading Ezekiel 4 this morning and pulled out 4 primary points about the prophet Ezekiel and Israel, taken from Jerusalem and made captives in Babylon because of their sin.

1. Being hardheaded/stubborn/and self righteousness can lead to your distruction. Solution: Listen.

2. Sin that you grow accustomed to can bind (key word) your mind, intellect and heart which will eventually lead to spiritual destruction. Solution: Pay attention to those “subtle” sins hid under the excuse - this is the way I’ve always done it or I was raised that way.

3. People respond more intently to images they can see over words they hear. Solution: Show better than you tell.

4. Purpose binds (key word) the faithful Believer. You may not understand everything your purpose entails, but you do know that it is your assignment to complete. Solution: Your purpose may look and sound crazy, make you uncomfortable and even afraid. The answer is still the same - submit to God’s will and follow.
