Scripture Nugget 9.7.2015

“And I sought for anyone among them who would repair the wall and stand in the breach before me on behalf of the land, so that I would not destroy it; but I found no one. Therefore I have poured out my indignation upon them; I have consumed them with the fire my wrath; I have returned their conduct upon their heads, says the Lord GOD.” Ezekiel 22:30-31


Life Application Topic


“God wants us to repent just as God wanted the children of Israel to repent. We read in Ezekiel 22:30 that God is looking for a person among us who is righteous enough to repair the walls of righteousness and stand before God. In essence, God is looking for someone who will build trust, who will stand in the breach, who will take up our slack, so that we can again have a right relationship with God. God will then lead us to repentance and fullness of life. Thank God for Jesus!” (Wesley Study Bible, page 1011)
