God is Judge…

Read: Ezekiel 5-8
Marked: Ezekiel 5:7-8, Therefore thus says the Lord GOD: ‘Because you have multiplied disobedience more than the nations that are all around you, have not walked in My statutes nor kept My judgments, nor even done according to the judgments of the nations that are all around you
therefore thus says the Lord GOD: ‘Indeed I, even I, am against you and will execute judgments in your midst in the sight of the nations.

Interesting verses. We should expect the judgment of God for not obeying His statutes. But here God makes a specific mention that His people did not even keep the judgments that the other nations did.

As His people God expects us to be good citizens and representatives of God and walk according to His word. His word tells us we are to obey the statutes (laws) of the land as long as they don’t overrule the statutes of God.

God takes note of how we live our lives. Hebrews 12:14-15 tells us, Pursue peace with all people, and holiness, without which no one will see the Lord: looking carefully lest anyone fall short of the grace of God; lest any root of bitterness springing up cause trouble, and by this many become defiled.
