Ezekiel 22

13 I will strike My hands at your extortion and murderous ways. 14 Will you be courageous and strong when I come to deal with you? I, the Eternal One, will do what I’ve said I will do. 15 I will scatter you among the nations and disperse you throughout unfamiliar lands! I will put an end to your impurity. 16 When you have been defiled in front of the nations, you will know that I am the Eternal.

When the day of judgement comes where will I be? The book of Ezekiel has been weighing me down lately, thinking about my own sin. I often feel like I am on the side of rebellious Israel as opposed to the righteous and God obedient Ezekiel. Perhaps an inventory is required, but I feel I may be harboring unfair guilt. I pursue a relationship with God daily, some days harder than others admittedly, and I always remind myself I need His strength not my own to do His will.

1 Peter 1: 18- 19 For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.

But still, being stuck in guilt and shame due to sin is not what God wants for me of any of His children, nor is it why Christ himself died. We are set free and can have life again, no matter how many times we fall.
