I came across this post by Dan Edelen yesterday, and want to share it with you.
How quick we are to presume we know the whole story! I never noticed the passage in Ezekiel before, either!
How many of the things in that list – arrogance, gluttony, apathy, uncaringness/unlovingness, haughtiness – are you and I guilty of?
Again how true is what Jesus says to his disciples: “Do you think that these Galileans were worse sinners than all the other Galileans because they suffered this way? I tell you, no! But unless you repent, you too will all perish. Or those eighteen who died when the tower in Siloam fell on them – do you think they were more guilty than all the others living in Jerusalem? I tell you, no! But unless you repent, you too will all perish.”
There is no one sin that is any worse than another – we’ve all sinned and deserve death and punishment.
How awesome is it that God provided a way of escape through his Son!
