Ezekiel - Chapter 3

Ezekiel 3:5 - Oh good, a friendly audience ...

Ezekiel 3:7 - ... or not.

Ezekiel 3:8-9 - I like how God says, "They are hard headed people, but don't worry, I've made your head even harder!" God created Ezekiel, or shaped him over his life (same difference) jsut for this purpose. He was made for it and therefore equipped to handle it. If God created or called me for a purpose, he would do the same - equip me for it.

Ezekiel 3:14-15 - Equipped or not, Ezekiel isn't taking this calling very well. Bitterness and overwhelmed. I can relate to that at times!

Ezekiel 3:16-21 - Ezekiel had a God given responsibility to fulfill. He had a choice of whether he would fulfill it or not, but he had no choice of whether to take the responsibility. He would be held accountable. That's a bit frightening to consider. If I believe that God created me for a specific ministry (and I do), how then can I justify not filling it? Will He not hold me accountable as well? If we I ignore and brush off the fate (both Earthly and eternally) of folks around us me, how will we I escape their blood being on our my hands?
