Ezekiel 33:11, 2 Peter 3:9

 
Say to them: "'As I live,' says the Lord GOD, 'I have no pleasure in the death of the wicked, but that the wicked turn from his way and live. Turn, turn from your evil ways! For why should you die, O house of Israel?'...The Lord is not slack concerning His promise, as some count slackness, but is long-suffering toward us, not willing that any should perish but that all should come to repentance.
Ezekiel 33:11, 2 Peter 3:9

The joy of the Lord is the salvation of man. His love for His creation caused Him to provide deliverance from our sins through the death of His Son Jesus. His appeals through the prophet Ezekiel shows us His heart, His pleasure is not in judgment but in redemption. His long-suffering with sinners, says Peter, is that He wants each of us to come to repentance, to turn from our evil ways, and look to Jesus to be saved.

Have you turned to Jesus and received the forgiveness that only He can provide through His death at Calvary? If so, are you telling others what God wants to do in their lives, even as Peter and Ezekiel did in their generations? His joy is still to save, may your joy be to declare that!

Thrilled to share the Gospel and the heart of God to save,

Pastor Jack Abeelen
