Ezekiel 2:3 He said: “Son of man, I am sending you to the Israelites, to a rebellious nation that has rebelled against me; they and their ancestors have been in revolt against me to this very day. 4 The people to whom I am sending you are obstinate and stubborn. Say to them, ‘This is what the Sovereign Lord says.’ 5 And whether they listen or fail to listen—for they are a rebellious people—they will know that a prophet has been among them.
I try to imagine what it must have been like for Ezekiel to have experienced the visions of God and His glory as expressed in chapter 1. The interpretation of those images, no matter how silly seem to have overshadowed the calling of the man to speak the word of the Lord to a stubborn and obstinate people. God shouted loudly through the mouths of the prophets yet still, the people by and large ignored the warnings.
In the end Jesus came and lived among us and people saw what it meant to walk as God walked, to think as God thought, to love as God loves. And what was the result? The Cross! But wait, that’s not the end of the story. That was the beginning of the greatest adventure in the history of mankind. Jesus rose from the grave having defeated death once for all.
He left his followers with a command, a calling which none of us can get around. We are to continue His work of making disciples wherever we are and to say loudly the good news of salvation.
