We’re in Ezekiel this week. He is another of what are called the major prophets; the others are Isaiah, Jeremiah, and Daniel. Many Christians are trying their best to seek and save the lost. We want to be fishers of men. Some of us are pretty pushy when we try to share the gospel with others. Ezekiel 3 shows why we are. Notice how important Ezekiel’s ministry was and compare it to our ministry today.
Ezekiel 3:17-21, “Son of man, I have made you a watchman for the house of Israel. Whenever you hear a word from my mouth, you shall give them warning from me. 18 If I say to the wicked, `You shall surely die,’ and you give him no warning, nor speak to warn the wicked from his wicked way, in order to save his life, that wicked person shall die for his iniquity, but his blood I will require at your hand. 19 But if you warn the wicked, and he does not turn from his wickedness, or from his wicked way, he shall die for his iniquity, but you will have delivered your soul. 20 Again, if a righteous person turns from his righteousness and commits injustice, and I lay a stumbling block before him, he shall die. Because you have not warned him, he shall die for his sin, and his righteous deeds that he has done shall not be remembered, but his blood I will require at your hand. 21 But if you warn the righteous person not to sin, and he does not sin, he shall surely live, because he took warning, and you will have delivered your soul.”
May God bless you this week, and may you believers become more determined to obey what Jesus told us in Mark 16:15-16: “Go into all the world and proclaim the gospel to the whole creation. 16 Whoever believes and is baptized will be saved, but whoever does not believe will be condemned.”
