You shall live in the land I gave your ancestors;
you shall be my people, and I will be your God. (Ez 28b)
In the first reading from Ezekiel, the Lord tells His people that He will cleanse them from all their impurities and that He will replace their stony hearts with natural hearts.
He promises to be their God if they will be His people.
That really does beg the question: Is He really your God?
How much credence do you put in the Lord’s words?
How willing are you to follow His commandments?
How much do you give of yourself in service to His people?
Are you “His people” or are you living your life for yourself?
It is a question that we need to ask ourselves each day. The answer will truly reflect who we are.
FAITH ACTION: The Lord has made a commitment to us. How is your commitment to Him? In prayer, recommit yourself to Him this day:
Father, into your hands I commit my spirit. I ask
you to show me the way. Help me to dedicate myself
completely to you that each person I come into contact
with today may be able to see not only me, but you as well.
