Ezekiel 7-9, Hebrews 3
Yes, Annie, encourage each other so that our hearts don’t become hardened. That is a scary thing–refusing to listen to God anymore. The consequence? He might leave us. Look what happened in the vision of Ezekiel– people resort to worshipping false gods (power, sex, creation), rather than the Creator. In some way or another, we are all guilty of valuing the house over the builder (Hebrews 3:3). I know I am. I spend more times worrying about what to cook for Thanksgiving than getting my heart right to offer thanks to God. Idolatry is not always extreme. It can happen slowly, inconspicuously, deceiving us in small degrees. Let’s keep encouraging each other so that lurking sin will be exposed and we can fix our eyes MORE on Jesus, and LESS on the best turkey recipes.
13 But encourage each other daily, while it is still called today, so that none of you is hardened by sin’s deception.
