More on how adoption changes everything is to come,
but I wanted to jot down something that's been on my mind.
Have you ever read Scripture and it stops you in your tracks?
Like you stop and think, is HE talking about me? To me?
That's how I felt the other day when I came across Ezekiel 33:30-33. As I reread it I still feel a knot in my stomach and my heart sink.
I read that and I wonder if that is us?
Do we go to church and listen to a lovely song
and feel good as we watch a beautiful musical performance
and with our mouths speak love
but our hearts are pursuing our own gain?
Do we sit before our pastors and hear their words each week,
but do not put into practice what we hear?
I don't want that to be us.
A few days after coming across these verses, I read Acts 9:31.
I was so encouraged that I kept coming back to this verse
and began praying it for me and for our church.
Peace, edified, fear of the Lord, comfort of the Holy Spirit, multiplied.
Will you pray with me?
