Day 247

Today’s Reading – Ezekiel 25-27

How your betrayals defile you! I cleansed you, but you didn’t come clean from your impurities. You won’t be clean again until I have exhausted my anger against you. 
Ezekiel 24:13 CEB

Remember when records were actually vinyl?

Remember when they would get scratched and repeat themselves over and over?

I am often accused of sounding like a broken record – the same message over and over.

I have often lamented to myself that I seem to be in a rut with the same message coming through Sunday after Sunday.

Then I read Ezekiel (all 27 chapters so far) and wonder, “How did he keep on?”

The same message over and over – Destruction is coming!

I am relieved that my repetitive message is seemingly filled with more hope . . .

God loves you . . .

Jesus died for you . . .

How you live your faith matters . . .

Then again, on second read . . . that is exactly what Ezekiel was proclaiming.

Tomorrow’s Reading – Ezekiel 28-30


I am a United Methodist Pastor and have the privilege of serving as the Senior Pastor for the church of my childhood. I preach in a place I once was an acolyte. I love to preach, but more importantly I love to teach. I firmly believe that Faith Matters and should affect how we live. This blog is a place where I come to share the randomness that is life and faith ... and the intersection of the two.
