Death will not have the last word.

Ezekiel 22:23-23:49; Hebrews 11:1-16; Proverbs 27:15-22

The contrast between a life of sin and shame and a life of faith and blessing is highlighted in the comparison between the passages in Ezekiel and Hebrews. The contrast is between living for the things we see – “She saw men … As soon as she saw them she lusted after them” (Ezekiel 23:14-16) – and living and “longing for a better country – a heavenly one” (Hebrews 11:16). Proverbs 27:20 says, “Death and Destruction are never satisfied, and neither are the eyes of man.” The glory of the Christian hope is that Death and Destruction will not have the last word. God has prepared a city for His people (Hebrews 11:16). Our eyes will look upon Him, and we will rejoice in Him who satisfies completely – our Creator, our Redeemer: God.
