03/19 Ezekiel 36:26-27
26 And I will give you a new heart, and I will put a new spirit in you. I will take out your stony, stubborn heart and give you a tender, responsive heart. 27 And I will put my Spirit in you so that you will follow my decrees and be careful to obey my regulations.
Ezekiel passes on harsh words to the exiled people of Israel. They profaned the name of God throughout all the Earth and His frustration shows. God promises to advance His mission Himself in Jesus Christ. Even after the resurrection of Jesus and the coming of the Holy Spirit God’s people, those who by faith have accepted Jesus, are slow to follow Him. People need the Lord. Follow Jesus.
