I had the honor and privilege of preaching Ezekiel 14 to the saints at Grace Community Church this past Sunday. Notes and audio are available here.
We cannot hide from God, and we’re not smart enough to get away with our sins even if we could. The message of Ezekiel 14 is twofold: God sees through you, and God sees only you.
Our hope is not in empty, external actions; neither is there hope in riding on the coattails of a friend or family member. The only hope we have is that God takes hold of us by the heart (14:5) so that we do not stray from Him or defile ourselves any longer (14:11).
