Ezekiel - Chapter 11

Ezekiel 11:1-4 - It's one thing to be shown the sin of a nation and the judgement coming form God, and even to be called to prophesy to that nation about their sins. It's another to be told to prophesy against individuals for their role in leading that nation. I get real uncomfortable thinking of standing before one person and laying them out for their sin.

Ezekiel 11:13 - As I read this, I was thinking "See, Ezekiel wasn't fired up to pronounce judgement on individuals either!" Then I got to the end of it and saw that his concern was not for his own comfort in delivering a hard message, but for Israel. OK, I'm convicted.

Ezekiel 11:14-21 - God gives Ezekiel a message of comfort. It's going to be OK, there are some who will return to the land of Israel. They will clean up the detestable things. Not only that, but God will restore their hearts and they will walk in His ways.
