Day 250

Today’s Reading – Ezekiel 34-36

Then you will remember your evil ways and no-good deeds,
and you will feel disgust for yourselves because
of your sinful and detestable practices.

Ezekiel 36:31 CEB

This passage today reminded me of the “ought to” proof of God.

It goes something like this . . .

How do you know that God is real?

Think of those moments when you did something, but part of you said, “I ought to not be doing this.” Or think of those times you started to walk the other way and that voice inside you said, “You ought to do something.”

That “Ought to” for me is the voice of God – The Holy Spirit – speaking to you.

Without God we are self-seeking individuals. The fingerprint of God on our very existence is the voice that calls out to you.

You ought to be . . .

You ought not be . . .

Don’t miss this voice either . . . You are called to more than this . . .

You are one of God’s children.

Tomorrow’s Reading – Ezekiel 37-39


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.
