Lord, You speak to us about our sin and Your salvation.

Lord, You speak to us about our sin – ‘Son of man, you are living among a rebellious people’ – and Your salvation – ‘I will… put a new spirit in them…’ (Ezekiel 12:2; Ezekiel 11:19-20). Show us, Lord, that we must receive’ with humility, the bad news concerning our sin – ‘The wages of sin is death’ – before we can receive, with gladness, the Good News concerning Your salvation – ‘The free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord’ (Romans 6:23). You want each of us to be saved: ‘The Lord… does not want anyone to perish; He wants everyone to turn away from their sins’ (2 Peter 3:9). To those who refuse to be saved, dismissing the bad news concerning their sin and closing their hearts to the Good News concerning Your salvation, You speak Your Word or warning: ‘…I will punish them for what they have done’ (Ezekiel 11:21).
