Ezekiel 18:23 Scripture Meditation by Stephen Taylor

Ezekiel 18:23

“'Do I take pleasure in the death of the wicked?’ declares the Sovereign LORD. “Rather am I not pleased when they turn from their ways and live?’” 

 

Throughout the 18th chapter of Ezekiel, it talks about two kinds of people, the ones who turns from sin and live and the ones who turns from righteousness and die.

 

This has been a tough week for me, as I have failed in many different areas, but it’s not about whether I fail or not; it’s how I respond to it that matters! Am I going to just sit here and continue to sin or am I going to get up, dust myself off, and grab Jesus’ hand and try again? See, we are all going to fall, and God knows that, but it’s up to us how far we’re going to go before we turn from our sin and repent!

 


I can’t coast off yesterday’s accomplishments or think that I have “made it!” I have to pick up my cross daily and walk the walk and talk the talk.

 

It says, “If a wicked person turns to Me, they will live, but if a righteous person turns towards sin, they will die!” I have to keep that in mind and not grow complacent or lazy! When I sin, I have a choice to either run from God or run towards Him and His forgiveness!! I pray we all run towards Him today!!! I chose to turn back towards God; how about you??

 

I love you all, God bless, and all the Glory to God!
