Grace and peace to you.

Ezekiel 19:1-20:44; Hebrews 10:1-18; Psalm 122:1-9

God is gracious. Despite all the sin of Israel, described in great detail in these chapters of Ezekiel, God still says, “I will accept you as fragrant incense” (Ezekiel 20:41). He still says, “I deal with you for My Name’s sake and not according to your evil ways and your corrupt practices” (Ezekiel 20:44). How does God deal with us in mercy and grace? He does so through Jesus Christ: “we have been made holy through the sacrifice of the body of Jesus Christ once for all” (Hebrews 10:10). Concerning Jerusalem, the Psalmist prays, “May there be peace within your walls and security within your citadels” (Psalm 122:7). This is what we have “in Christ” – peace and security. In Him, we have been removed from the realm of our own sin and guilt. We have been placed in His peace and security.
