Ezekiel 45-46, 1 John 3
Beloved, we are God’s children now, and what we will be has not yet appeared. The now and not yet is the tension we live in, but John gives us simple instructions. Keep his commandments. And above all keep the commandment to believe in Jesus Christ as the Son of God.
1See what kind of love the Father has given to us, that we should be called children of God; and so we are. The reason why the world does not know us is that it did not know him.
“Beloved, if our heart does not condemn us, We have confidence before God; and whatever we ask we receive from him, because we keep his commandments and do what pleases him” 1 John 3 21-22
23And this is his commandment, that we believe in the name of his Son Jesus Christ and love one another, just as he has commanded us.
To love in deed and in truth…loved todays reading.
I like the concept from Ezekiel of entering through one gate and leaving through another. It reminds of of our sins being as far the east is from the west. It also makes me think of repentance – turning and going the other way. I considered that in the organizing of temple worship and sacrifices that it might have been a logistical way of keeping the flow of traffic orderly. But I also think God designed things with more than just order in mind.
How great is our God ladies ! ❤️
Very much so❤️
