Ezekiel 35-36 B

“I will vindicate the holiness of My great name which has been profaned among the nations, which you have profaned in their midst. Then the nations will know that I am the LORD,” declares the Lord GOD, “when I prove Myself holy among you in their sight.” (36:23‬)

The LORD goes on to detail His plan to cleanse His people: exchanging their hearts, and filling them with His Spirit. He plans to use the very people who made Him look bad in the first place?

This makes me think about the ways the LORD’s name is profaned in 2020.

What does it look like for His people, full of His Spirit, to reintroduce His true heart and nature to the world? How can we know if we have the right heart or His Spirit? How do we know when He is glorified in truth?

Stay in His word. Familiarize yourself with His voice and practice spotting His handiwork. It often looks like light and hope in dark places, healing in sickness, life from death, forgiveness and restoration. The fruit of His Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, etc.

His glory is evident in creation, is it evident in you?

-Bethany
