Have mercy on us, O Lord.

Ezekiel 20:45-22:22; Hebrews 10:19-39; Psalm 123:1-4

Human sin and divine judgment, described in such detail in these chapters of Ezekiel – this is the backcloth against which we are called to go on with the Lord: “If we deliberately keep on sinning after we have received the knowledge of the truth, no sacrifice for sins is left, but only a fearful expectation of judgment and of raging fire that will consume the enemies of God” (Hebrews 10:26-27). In the face of our sin and God’s judgment, “our eyes look to the Lord our God, till He shows us His mercy.” We pray, “Have mercy on us, O Lord, have mercy on us” (Psalm 123:3).
