Ezekiel was a picture of Christ (Ezekiel 3); God sent him (v6) to speak to a people not willing to listen. Paul was a picture of Christ (Acts 20); For three years Paul never stopped warning the Ephesian elders night and day with tears (v31). Ezekiel was before Christ and Paul was after Christ; They were both a picture of Christ.
Can you and I be a picture of Christ too? The world needs to see Christ in us!
Do you feel trapped sometimes? Do you feel imprisoned sometimes? Do you ever feel like a bird in a cage longing to fly out? I do until I found The Way out - The Only Way.
God can set anyone, and everyone free - through faith in Christ – not free to do what we like but free to do His will - free from darkness, free from blindness - in His Light, you see light - free from sin and shame, free from guilt and condemnation – washed by His Blood, clothed in His Righteousness …
Dear Father God,
I pray in the same words as Jesus (John 17:22-23) - Jesus has given us the glory that You gave Him, that we may be one as You are one with Christ: Christ in us and You in Christ. May we be brought to complete unity to let the world know that You sent Jesus Christ and You love us even as You have loved Christ. Amen.
Jesus Christ brings freedom to our total person, and even our individuality is transformed. The transformation is brought about by LOVE – personal devotion to Jesus. LOVE is the overflowing result of one person in true fellowship with another. Amen.
In Jesus’ wonderful, beautiful, glorious and matchless name I pray.
