In Ezekiel’s prophecies he says that the nation of Israel will experience a great time of abundance and peace in the future. At that time in history the people had seen everything devastated and lost. Those that believed the prophecies lived with a hope in God that he would restore all good things to Israel. Ezk.27: 34
- Prophecies Fulfilled: How will we respond to God’s work?
Many people today do not think that the prophecies of the Old Testament have been fulfilled. However, in this reading Jesus says that on a spiritual level he is the fulfillment of God’s plan.
- The Object of Our Choice: Gods Word
Those that take in the word and let the word bear fruit are receptive to God. 1Peter 1:22-2:3
We need to work in regards to the word to show we are serious about spiritual things.
- The Openness of Our Choice: Desire for God’s Love
Are we willing to sacrifice for God’s love? 1Peter 2:2-3
People who have tasted the kindness of God want to do what ever it takes to get more of it in their lives.
- The Outcome of Our Choices: Life or Death
God will keep what is valuable. Make the choices that keep you in The Way, which leads to life.
